HITS AND MISSES
■ 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.
