Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change Government of India released India’s Long-Term Low-Carbon Development Strategy at  COP27 in Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt

India is currently one of the fastest growing economies in the world, home to almost one-sixth of humanity. Its growth momentum is an integral part of global development and is essential to meeting the world’s sustainable development goals.

A number of challenges confront India’s development agenda including that of climate change. India’s contribution to global warming is minimal. Nevertheless, India is committed to combating climate change, by making development choices that ensure growth and development of the economy along low carbon pathways towards net-zero by 2070.

Recognizing that climate change is a global collective action problem, India is committed to addressing the challenge with firm adherence to multilateralism based on equity and the Principle of common but differentiated responsibilities and respective capabilities (CBDR-RC), as enshrined in the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
