India's Climate Action Plan Soon
Aug 12, 2015

The Government is in the process of finalising its post-2020 Climate Action Plan to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). In light of the decision of Conference of Parties held in Lima in 2014, whereby all Parties have to communicate their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) well in advance of the 21st session of the Conference of Parties, by 1st October 2015 in a manner that facilitates clarity, transparency and understanding of the intended nationally determined contributions, Government of India has undertaken an elaborate multi-stakeholder consultation process for finalizing its INDCs for submission ahead of the expected date. 

  • A series of consultative meetings have been held with various ministries, think tanks, institutions, industry associations, NGOs and Civil society in this regard. 

  • India has been advocating a strong and ambitious outcome in Paris in accordance with the principle and provisions of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). 

  • It has been highlighting the strong domestic initiatives of the new government on climate change. 

  • India has been coordinating with the G-77 and China, BASIC (Brazil, India, China and South Africa) group of countries and the Like Minded Developing Countries (LMDCs) for ensuring an equitable, comprehensive and balanced agreement in Paris.
