"India has an ambitious 2030 climate agenda, having set a target of 450 GW of renewable energy. Looking for shared solutions to drive progress faster," the official added.

Under the 2015 Paris Agreement, developed countries should commit to $100 billion annual funding for projects tackling climate change in developing countries. India has the goal of reducing the emissions intensity of GDP by 33-35 percent by 2030, and according to the authorities, it has reached 21 percent of this thus far.
