Public Policy Summit and Awards

21-22 July 2022

Understanding the topics and why they matter

Climate change, sustainable development and clean energy

Climate change is arguably the largest, most complex issue facing humanity. To keep global warming below 2°C, India along with 196 countries, has agreed to gradually reduce the use of fossil fuels, switching to clean energy sources and reducing CO2 emissions to reach net carbon neutrality by 2050. Decarbonisation is a major way to keep global warming within acceptable levels. The April 2022 report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has warned of significant dangers from global warming – worsening natural disasters and an ecosystem collapse over time.

Urbanization is intrinsic to development and often serves as a major driver of economic growth. Only 32% of the country’s population is living in the cities but that is going to change by 2050. Cities occupy just 3 percent of India’s land, but they contribute 60 percent of its GDP. Balancing the needs of our modern societies by incorporating sustainability into our development and using cleaner sources of energy to power lives is crucial for liveable conditions to endure on our planet. Governmental action at various levels has been trying to counter environmental degradation.
