International security scenario is changing rapidly with changes in agendas of common interest. The themes for international collaborations are becoming more and more on cooperation for those common interests. The past decade has seen augmented acknowledgement of the relationship between environment and foreign policy within academic literature and among strategic groups. Increasing verification by various communities for the linkage between environment and security has been discussed in detail in the most recent conferences of UNEP and COP. This study explores India's foreign policy and its role in the environmental security agenda. This study also identifies the relationship between foreign policy and environmental security, which a descriptive survey of the history of the environment has done. New emerging security concerns have been elaborated. In the changing strategic environment, India's initiatives in articulating international security strategies for environmental security have been evaluated in this work. Various efforts of all levels of foreign policy efforts have been traced. Some suggestions have been presented based on this analysis that can help to decision-makers in framing relevant strategy to achieve the agenda of a sustainable world.
