In the evolving climate policy narrative of the Global South, there is a pressing requirement for embracing climate resilient development pathways that are adept at decision making under increasingly uncertain and interrelated climate and social challenges arising across scales. Much of the world’s vulnerable population reside in the country with limited access to resources that can enable resilience to climate risks and its impacts. It is imperative that policies, plans and vision at the all levels in India should recognise the economic, social, environmental risks arising from climatic events.
The 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), to be held from 1–12 November 2021 in Glasgow will aim to mobilize the action on mitigation, adaptation, and resilience, and strengthen the narrative for better alignment with sustainable development goals. TERI is preparing a COP26 Charter of Actions which will assimilate questions and challenges posed by keys sectors in India. The Charter will also propose probable and sector specific options which can advance climate action and ambition in the country.
With the above background, a stakeholder roundtable will be organized with the following objectives.
