Significance of the Decision at Kigali: Implications for India

On October 15, 2016 nearly 197 countries got together to mark incremental progress in overcoming differences, drawing upon creativity, compromises, and trust towards finally reaching an agreement which is ambitious, balanced, and unique. Countries came together to adopt a deal to phase-down global climate warming hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) emissions under the Montreal Protocol, drawing a set of differentiated baselines and freeze years within both Article 5 and non-Article 5 countries.India took responsible steps to escalate its ambition to mitigate its HFCs as well as it has put forth an innovative proposal to embed and enhance energy efficiency in the process. This policy brief discusses what lies ahead for India in terms of the long-term implication of the Kigali amendment and the innovative approaches to meet these goals.
