India: Climate Change - Agriculture and Policy in India

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IN2021-0070

India’s agricultural sector is highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change and extreme weather events. With a rapidly growing population and limited natural resource base, India’s grain and livestock sectors contribute to significant global greenhouse gas emissions, yet the country’s diverse agricultural systems offer significant ecological benefits that can improve resiliency to climate change impacts. India’s climate policies have been consistent over the years and continue to emphasize climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts through domestic growth and economic development. As the growth center for energy demand the next two decades, India maintains its goal to install 450 gigawatts of renewable energy by 2030, while prioritizing climate adaption policies and supporting rural, agricultural livelihoods.
