    According to Bhupender Yadav (Environment Minister), India is convinced that climate change is a worldwide problem that can only be tackled by International Collaboration and Multilateralism.

    Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav said in a prepared statement on Tuesday that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report released on Monday supports India’s view on the need for scale, scope, and speed in climate finance.

    The authors of the report warned that limiting global warming will necessitate massive energy sector transformations, including a drastic reduction in fossil fuel consumption, widespread electrification, greater energy efficiency, and the adoption of alternative fuels.

    India is convinced that climate change is a global challenge that can only be addressed via international collaboration and multilateralism. “India will continue to be a voice of ambition as well as a champion of equity on behalf of developing countries,” Mr. Yadav said at a CPCB seminar on reducing plastic pollution.

    The IPCC report focused on mitigation, or what could be done to reduce emissions to keep the world on track to stay below 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century. Nearly 80% of the overall carbon budget for keeping temperatures below 1.5°C had been spent, while 66% of the carbon budget for avoiding a 2°C overshoot had been depleted. Mr. Yadav pointed out that half of the world’s population, the vast majority of whom live in poor countries, accounted for only 14% of global emissions.

    With a dwindling carbon budget, he noted, getting a fair share of the remaining carbon budget for poor nations was a critical subject addressed in the report.

    “India believes that resource utilization should be based on purposeful and attentive consumption rather than mindless and harmful consumption,” he continued.

    Global Greenhouse Gas emissions averaged their greatest levels in human history between 2010 and 2019, although the rate of growth reduced. Limiting global warming to 1.5°C was out of reach without quick and profound emissions reductions across all sectors.

    Solar and wind energy, as well as batteries, have shown persistent cost reductions of up to 85% since 2010. The IPCC authors noted in their report that policies and laws in numerous nations have improved energy efficiency, cut deforestation rates, and accelerated the deployment of renewable energy.
