India

India is the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gases.  Emissions through 2040 are expected to grow more than the rest of developing Asia combined as the economy grows and as India seeks to provide electricity access to the 300 million who lack it.  USAID is helping India to realize its ambitious clean energy targets by supporting electricity grid improvements to handle the intermittent nature of renewable energy.  USAID also supports developing enabling policies for both renewables and energy efficiency, along with market-based deployment of clean energy. By building local stakeholders’ forest management capacity, USAID’s sustainable landscapes program increases the capture and storage of greenhouse gases. USAID’s adaptation programs support efforts to increase the resilience of agriculture, strengthen water security and disaster management to help vulnerable communities adapt to the impacts of climate change.
