UNDP has partnered with the Government of India to promote low carbon, climate resilient and inclusive development. Key areas of intervention are climate change (mitigation and adaptation), sustainable natural resource management (conserving biodiversity and addressing land degradation) and environmentally sound chemical management (phasing out of ozone depleting substances and reducing persistent organic pollutants). The loss of biodiversity and the changing climate are among the most prominent issues on the international agenda. These are not only environmental concerns; the issues are linked to the nature of economic development, poverty reduction, natural disasters, and peace and security. The health of the world’s biodiversity and climate is fundamental to all aspects of human well‐being.
