Impact of India’s INDC Commitment

Impact of India’s INDC Commitment
India’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) is comprehensive and balanced, incorporating all its development priorities. India’s contribution takes into account its commitment to conservation of nature, along with development challenges like poverty eradication, food security, universal access to education, health and energy etc. India’s NDC allows Gross Domestic Product (GDP) to grow, while reducing the emissions. Under the Paris Agreement, the developed countries have committed to mobilise US $100 billion per year and agreed to enhance it by 2025 beyond US $100 billion per year. Green Climate Fund (GCF) has been set up under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) as an operating entity of the financial mechanism of the Convention. India is an eligible country for accessing GCF.

Government of India has established the National Adaptation Fund for Climate Change (NAFCC) with a budget provision of Rs 350 crore for 2015-16 and 2016-17 to assist States and Union Territories to undertake projects and actions for adaptation to climate change. Rs. 182.27 crore has been released for 18 projects for sectors including agriculture and animal husbandry, water resources, coastal areas, biodiversity and ecosystem services.

Financial assistance of Rs. 10 lakh has been provided to each State Government for strengthening capacity of nodal agencies for implementation of State Action Plan on Climate Change (SAPCC). Twenty Nine (29) States/ Union Territories (UTs), viz., Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Chandigarh, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu & Kashmir, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Odisha, Puducherry, Punjab, Sikkim, Tamil Nadu, Tripura, Uttarakhand, Gujarat, Lakshadweep, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal have submitted their projects for capacity building.
