Most State Plans are being developed in complete isolation with views of experts, researchers, academics and civil society in the state. A number of them are seen to be completely disconnected with the geography, economy and social realities of the state; the templates could be equally relevant (rather irrelevant) for any state with the change in name and title.
Many of the states are being helped by World Bank, UNDP, DFID, GIZ etc. and have enough suggestions on how these state plans are being influenced by international climate change politics, manifolds increase in power production being one of them. It is exactly from where strong proposals to earn carbon credits from forests and soil carbon sequestration are coming, without states knowing much about the prevalent debates and apprehensions on these aspects.
