India’s plans are submitted. What can we expect?

CAIT Climate Data Explorer point out India's INDC's. India communicates its Intended Nationally Determined Contribution for the period 2021 to 2030:

  • To put forward and further propagate a healthy and sustainable way of living based on traditions and values of conservation and moderation.
     
  • To adopt a climate friendly and a cleaner path than the one followed hitherto by others at corresponding level of economic development.
     
  • To reduce the emissions intensity of its GDP by 33 to 35 percent by 2030 from 2005 level.
     
  • To achieve about 40 percent cumulative electric power installed capacity from non-fossil fuel based energy resources by 2030 with the help of transfer of technology and low cost international finance including from Green Climate Fund (GCF).
     
  • To create an additional carbon sink of 2.5 to 3 billion tones of CO2 equivalent through additional forest and tree cover by 2030.
     
  • To better adapt to climate change by enhancing investments in development programmes in sectors vulnerable to climate change, particularly agriculture, water resources, Himalayan region, coastal regions, health and disaster management.
     
  • To mobilize domestic and new & additional funds from developed countries to implement the above mitigation and adaptation actions in view of the resource required and the resource gap.
     
  • To build capacities, create domestic framework and international architecture for quick diffusion of cutting edge climate technology in India and for joint collaborative R&D for such future technologies.

CAIT (Climate Analysis Indicator Tools) is made up of a suite of tools that allow users to utilize the data to understand considerations of equity in climate negotiations, see transparency and available information in country climate action commitments, interact with historical emissions data, and dive into the methodologies behind future emissions projection. To see the current process of COP21, CAIT provides the Paris contributions map.
