- In the intro, mention India’s announcement of adopting a net-zero emission target by 2070.
- In the body, mention the developmental challenges as India seeks to trade the net-zero trajectory. Developmental challenges include finding employment for the youth, poverty eradication which could involve an investment-led and manufacturing-intensive growth model. India could also face the imposition of carbon border taxes by developed countries.
- In the suggestions mention the need for a green industrialisation strategy that combines laws, policy instruments, and new or reformed implementing institutions.
- Conclude by mentioning that the government should neither succumb to international pressure to decarbonise soon nor should it postpone its investment in decarbonisation technologies and lose its long-term competitiveness in a global low-carbon economy.
