This is the first time that India, with a population of about 1.4 billion, has set a deadline for carbon neutrality, although its goal is 20 years behind the summit’s global goal of advancing with a reduction to 2050.
Speaking at a meeting of world leaders at COP26 in Glasgow, Scotland, Modi said India would like to get half of its energy consumption from renewable sources by 2030.
During this decade, the country aims to increase its fossil fuel production by 500 gigawatts and reduce its carbon emissions by 1 billion tons.
Modi aims to reduce coal use by 45% by 2030. Stating that these targets were “India’s unprecedented contribution to climate action”, the Prime Minister warned that rich countries should respond with greater encouragement to funding his announcement.
“If we raise our ambitions in climate action, the global ambition in climate funding will not be at the same level as the 2015 Paris Agreement,” he argued.
“India expects developed countries to provide $ 1 billion in climate funding soon,” he commented.
The government official said the decisions made in Glasgow are sure to safeguard the future of future generations and guarantee a safe and prosperous life. EFE
