Synchronizing Energy Transitions Towards Possible Net-Zero for India

Prepared by the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad, this report attempts to answer key questions related to India’s energy trajectory such as how much energy does India need to achieve the high value of Human Development Index (HDI); what are pathways to achieve this; what are the energy mix projections for this until 2070 (our declared net-zero target year); what would be the cost of electricity to the end user; what would be the carbon emissions until 2070; what would be the investments required for energy transitions towards net-zero at 2070; estimation of other challenges and opportunities (RE integration, the requirement of critical minerals, Carbon Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS), natural gas, ethanol, hydrogen) in energy transitions towards achieving net-zero in 2070. Supported by: Office of the Principal Scientific Adviser to the Government of India and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd.

Could the law of the sea be used to protect small island states from climate change?

Climate change will wreak havoc on small island developing states in the Pacific and elsewhere. Some will be swamped by rising seas. These communities also face more extreme weather, increasingly acidic oceans, coral bleaching and harm to fisheries. Food supplies, human health and livelihoods are at risk. And it’s clear other countries burning fossil fuels are largely to blame.

Youth and Climate Governance in Asia and the Pacific: A Compendium of Best Practices

YECAP, in collaboration with UNFCCC's Action for Climate Empowerment (ACE), launched the Compendium of Best Practices on Youth and Climate Governance in Asia and the Pacific at the 79th ESCAP Commission Session and the Asia-Pacific Climate Week 2023. The Compendium highlights 15 best practices of meaningful youth engagement in climate governance at international, national, sub-national and local levels. The Compendium aims to celebrate successful government-youth partnerships, foster South-South knowledge exchange, and inspire enhanced action from governments to include youth in decision-making processes and policies in the Asia-Pacific region.
