Climate emergency: India says it can only aspire to implement already promised climate actions

Updated : September 23, 2019 04:38 PM IST

India will participate in the global Climate Action Summit on September 23 in New York where the United Nations secretary-general has called for countries to enhance their commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Days before the summit, the Indian government in a ‘discussion paper’ stated that it will only aspire to implement its already promised climate actions, citing lack of finance and technology transfer from developed countries.
It emphasised that the goal of net zero emissions by 2050 can be a global aspiration but not something developing countries can commit too as technology and its availability has not progressed to attain it.
