India Puts Climate Justice At The Core Of Sustainability Road Map 

As India embarks on an accelerated sustainability journey in line with the UAE consensus, it stresses on the imperative to work for global good but within national contexts, with the developed nations leading by example

The rigorous deliberations that lasted over two weeks resulted in the historic agreement, now known as the UAE consensus. It particularly motivates countries to accelerate the reduction of continuous coal power usage.

India’s Environment Minister, Bhupendra Yadav, stressed the values of fairness and climate justice as he encouraged world leaders to uphold the Paris Agreement with the fullest devotion during a crucial moment at the COP28 climate meeting.
A groundbreaking agreement that promotes the switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources was reached during the summit, which is a major step forward in the global fight against climate change. After rigorous negotiations spanning over two weeks, the UAE consensus has been reached. Notably, it pushes countries to accelerate the decrease of unrestricted coal power usage—a compromise achieved after China and India voiced significant opposition to targeting coal exclusively.

In his reflections on the summit’s outcomes, Minister Yadav emphasised the collaborative attitude that was prevalent in Dubai. He praised the COP28 collective effort on social media, tying it in with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ambitions for India’s G20 presidency.

Using the idea that “all people are members of one family,” or “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam,” the minister highlighted India’s commitment to inclusive climate action. India emphasises the significance of acting in accordance with national contexts for the global good while supporting the COP decision document. In light of their past emissions, Yadav called on industrialised countries to set an example and highlighted the necessity of taking decisive action in order to fulfil the objectives of the summit.

With great pride, the minister declared that India has not only fulfilled its 2030 Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) but has also amended them upwards, demonstrating its commitment to keeping the rise in global temperatures to 1.5 degrees Celsius over pre-industrial levels.

This achievement demonstrates India’s resolve to strike a balance between ecological preservation and economic prosperity. With its support of the Paris Agreement and proactive stance on climate policies, India is leading the way for other countries to follow in our shared endeavour to create a more sustainable and healthy world.
