Richer nations who have a long and historical share of emissions will have to provide well under $100 billion (£75 billion) to help poor nations to tackle climate change (30 September), India’s chief economic adviser said Thursday ahead of a U.S. UN climate change conference (COP26).

Wealthy nations are under pressure to make good on a broken promise to donate $100 billion a year to financing a developing country’s climate action.

The COP26 summit is seen as a critical opportunity to secure ambitious enough pledges from governments to stop global warming past 1.5 degrees Celsius – the threshold that scientists claim would prevent the worst consequences from climate change.

India has more than 100 GW of renewables installed, representing more than 25% of its capacity.

India is the third-largest greenhouse gas emitter in the world, behind China and the US, and its action against climate change is crucial with a view to cutting net global emissions to zero by the middle of the century.

Earlier this year, Reuters reported, citing sources, that India isn’t expected to commit to a net-zero target for greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
