India Leads on Climate Change by City-Tech blogger Aayush Madaan

My home country, India, has been a major part of the Paris Climate Change talks and a part of the Climate Change Agreement. India has received a lot of pressure from the international community to use renewable energy despite India’s annual global emissions being under 6% which is much less than that of  China, which is 28%. Because of India’s growing economy and population, India would end up in the same position as China in 10 to 20 years. Due to India’s population increase and significant demographic changes, nearly 10-12 million young people are looking for jobs. India would require a lot of infrastructure and therefore would require massive amounts of energy. In the Paris Climate Change talks, India reaffirms that it will have more of a balanced approach to expanding the availability of electricity and energy, as well as addresses the concerns of climate change and the use of renewable energy.
