For the first time, China was seen standing with India on an issue in the ongoing COP-28 Climate Change Summit in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. India avoided signing the pledge to triple global renewable energy capacity by 2030 because the draft paper mentioned phasing out coal use, which India does not support. Along with India, China also did not sign this agreement. Sources in the Indian delegation that came to attend the conference gave this information.
Both India and China on Saturday abstained from signing a pledge to triple the world’s renewable energy capacity by 2030 at the COP28 climate summit. However, India has already expressed its commitment in this regard in the G20 meeting chaired by it. During UN climate talks here, 118 countries committed to tripling global renewable energy capacity by 2030. A source in the Indian delegation said that India refrained from signing the commitment draft because the draft mentioned phasing out/shutdown of coal use, which it does not support.
This is the opinion of India
India is asking countries to agree to phase out all fossil fuel use instead of a narrow agreement to phase out coal use. The source said India has already reached an agreement on tripling renewable energy capacity at the G20 summit held in Delhi in September and the pledge taken by a group of countries is within the framework of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). Was out of. The commitments made during COP28 call for phasing out coal-fired power generation without restrictions and ending financing of new coal-fired power plants. (Language)
