■ In­dia is on track to achieve two of its three key cli­mate tar­gets un­der the Paris pact. In­dia’s na­tion­ally de­ter­mined con­tri­bu­tion to re­duc­ing CO2 emis­sions can mainly be cat­e­gorised un­der these three heads.

■ The first two are to achieve 40% of elec­tric power in­stalled ca­pac­ity from non-fos­sil fuel sources by 2030 and to re­duce the emis­sions in­ten­sity of In­dia’s gross do­mes­tic prod­uct (GDP) by 33% to 35% com­pared to 2005 lev­els by 2030.

■ In­dia has been lag­ging be­hind on the third tar­get, which is to cre­ate car­bon sinks of about 2.5 to 3 bil­lion tons. The third tar­get is linked with land use and on how much for­est cover can be in­creased.
