Question raised in Lok Sabha on Carbon Emissions, 13/03/2020

India has ratified the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) which is the primary multilateral treaty governing actions to combat climate change through adaptation and mitigation efforts directed at control of emission of Green House Gases (GHGs) that cause global warming. The Parties under the Convention submit their National Communication and Biennial Update Report (BUR) to the UNFCCC. Based on countries submission, the UNFCCC Secretariat does not undertake any ranking on their carbon emissions.
