ANIL AGARWAL MEDIA FELLOWSHIPS ON URBAN MOBILITY AND CLIMATE CHANGE IN INDIA
As part of its commitment to the Paris climate change agreement, India has pledged to reduce its emissions intensity by 35 per cent by 2030 under its INDC (Intended Nationally Determined Contribution). One sector that has had a big impact on climate as well as public health and air quality is urban transport. In India, especially over the past decade, rapid and rampant motorisation has enhanced the risks of air pollution.
