Above all, In its annual review of India’s climate change efforts, the. Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) stated that the country is on track to meet its. Targets of reducing emissions by 33 to 35 percent of. GDP by 2030 from 2005 levels and achieving 40 percent non-fossil fuel installed power capacity by 2030.
However, the review report ‘The Road from Paris: India’s. Progress Towards its Climate Pledge’ stated that the country still needs to focus on its goal of producing an additional carbon sink.
According to the NRDC analysis, India is critical to a successful outcome at the global climate talks starting next week in. Glasgow, just as it was at the Paris conference six years ago.
“The world has made progress on climate targets since the. Paris Agreement in 2015, especially with an extraordinary increase of renewable energy, but it is not enough.
For instance, “The earth is already. 1.2 degrees Celsius warmer than pre-industrial times, and unless countries commit to drastic and expedited decarbonization soon, we are on track for a disastrous. 2.7 degrees temperature rise by the end of this century,” it stated.
In addition, According to the analysis, a half-degree increase in global temperature could have catastrophic effects for millions of people as well as irreversible biodiversity loss.
Therefore, “At 1.5 degrees, nearly. 420 million less people would be subjected to extreme heatwaves, 65 million fewer people would be exposed to exceptional heatwaves, and. 61 million fewer urban inhabitants would be exposed to severe drought,” the report added.
