Abstract: The Ministry of Environment and Forest and Climate Change (MoEF and CC) is the leading agency working under the central government that looks after environment-related issues in India. Apart from the MoEF and CC, the Supreme Court of India (SC) and the National Green Tribunal play a crucial role in regard to protecting the environment. The MoEF and CC attended the twenty-sixth Conference of the Parties (COP-26) to the United Nations (UN) Framework Convention on Climate Change, which was held in Glasgow. India discussed and highlighted the following: (i) India’s non-fossil energy capacity to reach 500 gigawatts by 2030; (ii) India will meet 50 percent of its energy requirements with renewable energy by 2030; (iii) India will reduce its total projected carbon emissions by one billion tonnes from now to 2030; (iv) India will reduce the carbon intensity of its economy by 45 percent by 2030 compared to 2005 levels; and (v) by 2070, India will achieve the target of net-zero emissions. India also highlighted that the transfer of climate finance and low-cost climate technologies are the major hindrances to the implementation of climate actions by developing counties. The Indian delegation also participated in side events of COP-26, which included: the South Asia Co-operative Environment Programme; International Solar Alliance; the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure; the Leadership Group for Industry Transition; and the Namami Gange Programme (MoEF and CC, Year-End Review (29 December 2021)
