Climate Action: Getting back on Paris climate track

24 Mar 2021
Dr Sebastian Helgenberger

India has tremendous potential for a 'green recovery' from the impacts of Covid-19: The decarbonisation of India's energy sector has a strong role to play in reviving the economy and the health system by boosting employment, fostering rural electrification as foundation of local value creation, and unburdening national health systems by reducing the prevalence of respiratory diseases. The various co-benefits that accompany climate action link the missions and mandates of several ministries. The new AIPA committee, with members representing 14 ministries, is, therefore, perfectly suited to not only "generate a coordinated response on climate change matters," but also to maximise and coordinate the multiple social and economic co-benefits that accompany ambitious climate action.
