Sectoral Pathways for a Net-Zero Future for India: Implications and Feasibility

12 Oct 2021   |   1500 – 1630 hrs IST

Stringent climate action is necessary to stay below 1.5ºC and avoid catastrophes resulting from rapid climate change. Major economies like China, the EU, and the USA have already announced their net-zero targets, and India is also expected to announce the same. However, there is a limited understanding of the possible implications of the radical transformation required to achieve a net-zero future in India.

In the run-up to COP26, we will discuss the implications and feasibility of alternative net-zero scenarios for India, the economic and sectoral milestones required for their foundation, the way forward on policy directions and decisions, and the challenges and opportunities in achieving carbon neutrality. This session will also mark the launch of a working paper, 'Implications of a net-zero target for India's sectoral energy transitions and climate policy'.
