    States will play a key role in meeting the targets set under the NDCs. Many states have prepared State Action Plans on Climate Change (SAPCCs) and initiated other climate relevant measures. An enormous amount of funding is required to meet these goals, and states can access some of this funding from sources like centrally sponsored schemes and dedicated domestic and international climate funds like the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF). Now states must begin to identify various funding sources and target these sources based on their specific needs.

    The Delhi-NCR region’s air pollution problem is by now a well-documented and visible fact. In a recent national survey on air pollution undertaken by Edelman India on behalf of Shakti, Delhi residents displayed high levels of awareness of air pollution and its issues. What was surprising, however, is the number of misconceptions around the issue. The Survey, “A Hazy View” posed a wide range of questions on the subject of air pollution awareness, perceptions and attitudes across 11 Indian cities – Delhi, Mumbai, Kanpur, Patna, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Gwalior, Kolkata, Varanasi and Lucknow.

    Shakti supports the GHG Platform India (http://ghgplatform-india.org/), a multi-institution platform of civil society organizations to regularly prepare GHG emission estimates at the national and state levels and undertake policy relevant analysis. The Platform aims to address a critical data gap in India, which is the absence of regularly updated, transparent and publicly accessible GHG emissions data at the national and state level that is based on peer-reviewed methodologies.

    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.
