What Do 1.5°C-Aligned Scenarios Mean for India’s G20 Summit?
As the G20 Summit in India approaches, it is urgent to understand how energy decisions made by the world’s largest economies will affect the achievement of the Paris Agreement goals. This webinar explores how the G20 Summit under India’s presidency can be a platform to increase collaboration among emerging economies on national energy targets. It provides tools for policy-makers, investors, and companies to align with the Paris Agreement in the context of the principles of common but differentiated responsibilities.
Energy scenarios have a key role to play in guiding the transformation of the energy system to meet the 1.5°C temperature limit under the Paris Agreement. The IISD Navigating Energy Transitions report provides guidance for policy-makers, investors, and companies on how to align energy decision making with the goals of the Paris Agreement. It conducts an unprecedented analysis of the most influential modelled pathways consistent with limiting warming to 1.5°C.
This webinar, organized in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta’s Centre for Development and Environment Policy, begins by looking at the implications of 1.5°C-aligned scenarios for fossil fuel phase-out and renewable energy scale-up. This is followed by a presentation of India’s G20 climate and energy priorities and a discussion on expectations for India’s G20 presidency.
