At the One Planet Summit in December 2017, French President Emanuel Macron cautioned that “we are losing the battle” on climate change and are “nowhere near” being able to contain rising temperatures to between 1.5°C to 2°C. Instead, Macron warned, temperatures could rise by 3.5°C or more by the end of this century.

The assignment includes, but not least, scoping of the MSME sector, identifying suitable MBI(s) and recommends an optimum policy package, roadmap and action plan for implementation, and proposing critical design elements of MBI(s). In the assessment, the Consultant needs to take into consideration various elements on the sectors, such as emissions profile, contribution to India’s NDC, existing policies, mitigation options, incentive structures, and suitability to national circumstances. The proposed MBI should be based on the work of the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE)’s SME program and potential links and design convergence with the Perform Achieve and Trade scheme should be explored while reviewing policy and design options.
101 Countries Consider Carbon Pricing as Part of their Paris Agreement Commitments
HANOI, Vietnam, October 18—Greater cooperation through carbon trading could reduce the cost of climate change mitigation by 32 percent by 2030, according to a new World Bank report released today at an international carbon event in Vietnam.
New modelling analysis undertaken for the State and Trends of Carbon Pricing 2016 report shows that increased international carbon trading could enable large-scale emissions reductions at much lower cost than at present, based on the carbon mitigation goals spelled out in countries’ national climate plans under the Paris Agreement — the Nationally Determined Contributions, or NDCs. By the middle of the century, an international market has the potential to reduce global mitigation costs by more than 50 percent.
