The industrialised countries' disproportionately high cumulative emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs), as well as their high yearly per capita emissions of GHGs, are mostly to blame for climate change. Although contributing only 4% of the total worldwide emissions (from 1850 to 2019) and maintaining significantly lower per capita emissions than the global average, India is one of the most vulnerable regions due to the problem's global nature. Even though India isn't as much to blame for the huge stock of emissions, it has shown that it is a leader in the world by taking many steps and committing to a growth path with low emissions and a goal of net-zero emissions by 2070.

India has combined its ambitious climate action goals with its development objectives, whether it be through increased solar power capacity (installed), higher energy saving targets announced in PAT cycle-VII, or improved green cover made possible by the Green India Mission, among other focused government initiatives. India presently has 75 Ramsar sites for wetlands as part of its commitment to preserving ecosystems, in addition to several legal and promotional initiatives to save and conserve mangroves. With Namami Gange and the National River Conservation Plan (NRCP), people are working all the time to protect rivers and bring them back to life.
