With 1,4 billion inhabitants, India has recently become the world largest population. India now plays a global role, not only on the world economy (it is the 5th world economy) or in global geopolitics, but also on the world global climate trajectory.
However, the country faces a number of challenges. On the one hand, the Indian government has adopted ambitious investment programs to address the “classical” challenges of a developing country: providing access to all to basic services, addressing the huge infrastructure deficit, meeting the increasing energy demand and creating jobs.
On the other hand, climate change in its two-fold dimensions, attenuation and adaptation, is now a new game changer for India, being both one of the biggest emitter and one of the most vulnerable countries (with an increased exposure to extreme temperatures, droughts, floods, cyclones, etc.).
In spite of massive investments in renewables energies or electric vehicles, India transition towards net-zero, planned for 2070, will be challenging. And resilience of the territories is one of the key aspects of future Indian development.
