  • In the intro, mention India’s goals under the Paris Agreement.
  • In the body mention how India’s commitment under the Paris Agreement is on par with the developed countries while India’s is at the early stage of development which is reflected in various parameters like per capita income and per capita energy consumption etc. Energy is essential for development. Fulfilling this energy need through renewable energy in a cost-effective way and increasing the urban forestry could be the strategy to fulfil its commitment.
  • Conclude by mentioning the importance of balancing the two for sustainable development.
