Making net zero emissions a mission possible in India
October 15, 2020
| ET Energyworld
India could envisage peaking power sector emissions in the 2030s. Aggregate emissions pathways are more uncertain, given the large emissions growth expected from sectors like industry, trucking and aviation, where technologies are less mature. Nonetheless, even here mitigation technologies are improving rapidly. India's pathway will thus look different from that of China. It may not be ready to commit to an aggregate emissions peak. But large parts of the puzzle to make this mission possible are falling into place.

Multilateral institutions (MLIs) can support three interlinked activities: Mobilisation of finance, streamlined action towards tackling the biggest global externality and engagement of State and non-State actors to further climate action. These will hold immense importance even as countries choose to move into more unilateral and autarkist policies. Enabling large-scale finance to minimise carbon lock-in, creating conducive market conditions for green investments and building resilience through enhanced adaptation can be achieved with the support of dedicated MLIs.
A vehicle for green recovery

The COVID-19 outbreak is not just an economic but a humanitarian and environmental crisis. This has impeded India's contribution towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that were put forth in 2015 with an objective to eradicate poverty, safeguard the planet and ensure peace and prosperity for all by 2030. Moreover, the response to climate change has also lost traction globally with the postponement of the Conference of Parties (COP26) to 2021. Strategies need to be devised across sectors that will make India's economic recovery sustainable and climate-proof.
