“The G20 welcomed recent pledges of about $45 billion as a step toward what they characterized as a total global ambition of $100 billion of voluntary contributions for countries most in need. They also welcomed the ongoing work to significantly scale up the IMF's Poverty Reduction and Growth Trust, and they endorsed the establishment of a new resilience and sustainability trust, the RST, to provide affordable long-term financing to help vulnerable countries, including in Africa, small island developing states, and vulnerable middle-income countries,”

“India is currently one of the world's largest emitters still heavily reliant on coal for electricity generation, and so its actions may help catalyze action in other emerging market economies as well. India's significant investment in renewables and climate change adaptation policies suggests it's well-positioned to take further steps to reach this new target. We are heartened by India's focus on achieving progress in the current decade, given the urgent need for global mitigation action. And as with other countries, it will be important to follow through with specific actions to contain emissions over the current decade,”
