India's Second National Communication to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change

The Union Cabinet approved India`s Second National Communication to the Secretariat of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change towards fulfilment of the reporting obligation under the Convention.

Studies on key sectors were conducted in the short to medium and long time frame using latest models and know-how so as to bring out extant and projected high regional and sectoral variability and vulnerability. 

The estimations about GHG emissions have helped in quantifying the extent of India`s GHG emissions and its rate of growth, so as to help policy makers with appropriate information.

This report shall benefit state/national level policy makers in enhancing the understanding of the issues related to climate change and its impact and create general awareness of the stakeholders relating to Government of India`s proactive commitment towards addressing the challenges due to climate change.

The range of studies included in this report has been conducted broadly at the national level, with some specific case studies highlighting the enormous diversity of India and their regional imperatives. India is a Party to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate (UNFCCC).

The Convention, in accordance with its Article 4.1 and 12.1, enjoins all Parties, both developed and developing country Parties, to furnish information, in the form of a National Communication (a national report), regarding implementation of the Convention.

This project has been implemented with the financial support of USD 3.5 million provided by GEF and matched by a support of USD 3.0 million from the Government of India (in the nature of co-financing).
