In a landmark step to combat climate change, India along with nearly 200 other countries, adopted an agreement in Kigali, Rwanda to phase down the use of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) by amending the Montreal Protocol. At Kigali, India displayed leadership and flexibility by announcing several important measures to phase down HFCs. Given this important development, Shakti is supporting several efforts to enable a more informed policy discourse on this transition.
