India to update its climate targets for 2030 under Paris Agreement

India is now set to update its climate target for 2030 under the Paris Agreement. It plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by almost half produced for every dollar of economic activity by 2030.

The nationally determined contributions (NDCs) as commitments under the Paris Agreement could include a commitment to reduce the emissions intensity by around 46-48% from its 2005 levels. With India's renewable energy target of 450 GW, it could increase non-fossil fuel sources in the energy generation capacity by 60%, with increasing it to 65% by 2030.

India missed the deadline set by the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change to submit its updated climate plans. According to a senior official, India is considering announcing its updated NDCs at Glasgow, and it could be a part of the PM's intervention at the Leader's Summit at the 26th Conference of Parties (COP26).

According to the sources, India will keep its 2015 NDCs submission pattern which comprises eight targets, three of its had quantitative targets for ten years. India aims to increase its non-fossil fuel sources to 40% of its power generation capacity and reduce emissions by 33-35%, compared to its 2005 levels. The third element was the addition of a carbon sink of 2.5-3 billion tonnes CO2 equivalent.

Other sub-targets include decarbonization of Indian Railways by 30%, the addition of 450 GW renewable energy capacity, and the intervention of the National Green Hydrogen Mission to increase by 20-25% by 2030.

The updated NDC focuses on energy sector economic-wide intensity targets. The urban forest area of 20 hectares can also be included across 200 cities in the country.

Many countries, including the UK, called on India to reflect its current and proposed climate actions in the NDC.
