"India – Spearheading Climate Solutions” publication issued

Union Minister of Environment Harsh Vardhan on 12 Feb released a publication on climate action titled 'India - Spearheading Climate Solutions' which mentions the key actions India has taken under various sectors towards combating and adapting to climate change.

Major Initiatives

  1. National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC)
  2. National Adaptation Fund on Climate Change (NAFCC)
  3. Climate Change Action Programme (CCAP)
  4. State Action Plan on Climate Change (SAPCC)
  5. International Solar Alliances (ISA)
  6. Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT).

Highlights:

The renewable energy capacity stands at more than 74 GW which includes about 25 GW from solar energy. However, the goal to meet 122 GW energy generations through renewable energy seems difficult.

Under the UJALA scheme, more than 320 million LEDs were distributed.

Note:

UJALA scheme: Unnat Jyoti by Affordable LEDs and Appliances for All was launched on 1 May 2015 replacing the "Bachat Lamp Yojana".

The project is spearheaded by the Energy Efficiency Services Limited.
