Climate Change & Energy
Climate change is among the most important global environmental challenges, the impacts of which can be felt in almost every sector, from food production, water availability, energy, health among others, particularly affecting the low-income households. Energy production is also a key driver of climate change, causing the majority of the greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, India, in the post-Paris Agreement period, is faced with the formidable challenge of meeting the increasing energy demands of the nation while addressing the environmental challenges posed by dependence on fossil fuels.
