As a signatory of the Paris Agreement, India is strongly in favour of limiting global warming to a temperature rise of 1.5oC. The IPCC Special Report, Global Warming of 1.5oC, recommends that a global Net Zero Emissions by 2050 trajectory is likely to meet this objective. India is well on its way to significantly exceed the mitigation actions promised in the Nationally Determined Contributions for the Paris Agreement. It is important for India and other developing countries to balance their development and climate change challenges simultaneously.

This panel discussion focuses on the climate policies, climate diplomacy initiatives, global partnerships, and climate policy institutions and implementation mechanisms that India, and the world, need in this decade to prepare for a global Net Zero target.
