India sets up committee for implementation of climate change targets

The Centre has set up a committee which will oversee the implementation of climate change targets that India has committed to under the 2015 Paris Agreement.

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEFCC) on Wednesday issued a Gazette notification on forming a high-level inter-ministerial Apex Committee for Implementation of Paris Agreement (AIPA).

“The purpose of the AIPA is to generate a coordinated response on climate change matters which ensures that India is on track to meet its obligations under the Paris Agreement, including its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC),” said the public statement by MoEFCC.

At the G20 summit last month, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said India was not only meeting its Paris Agreement targets but was exceeding them.
