Currently, rich nations provide an estimated $80 billion annually, which poorer nations say isn't enough to develop clean energy systems and to adapt to worsening climate shocks.
The CEM is meant to bring a shift in awareness, especially in India, to the fact that climate change is a global collective action problem and cannot be solved merely by self-sacrifice
China, which is heavily dependent on coal-fired power, pledged last year to start reining in its fossil fuel emissions later in this decade and to become carbon neutral by 2060.
PM Modi also announced that the carbon intensity of India's economy -- the amount of goods produced per unit of energy -- would be reduced by 45 percent by 2030.
If all 2030 climate targets are met, Earth will still heat by 2.7℃ this century. Here's why that's not ok
A report found global targets for net-zero emissions by mid-century could cut another 0.5℃ off global warming. While this is a big improvement, it will still see temperatures rise to 2.2℃ this century
Morrison said his government would stick with Australia's current 2030 target of reducing emissions by 26 per cent to 28 per cent below 2005 levels.
Reducing emissions is a politically fraught issue in Australia, which is one of the world's largest exporters of coal and liquified natural gas.
Chennai, which is ranked 224, is behind Delhi (63), the only Indian city in the global top 100. Mumbai is ranked 240, Hyderabad 245, Bengaluru 259, and Pune 260.

If they do not respond to the letter in the coming weeks and halt their "illegal behaviour", the NGOs said they are ready to file lawsuits in court.
China has said its carbon emissions should peak by 2030 and then decline, with a goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2060.
However, all these efforts are part of its larger goal of becoming a 50 million tonne per annum (MTPA) capacity steel company by 2030.
The import fee will be based on the domestic environmental cost incurred and will initially cover goods that are both carbon-intensive and exposed to trade competition, like aluminum, cement etc.
He further said that as per the Paris agreement, India has to produce 40 per cent electricity of its total capacity from non-fossil sources by 2030.
Eurostat said in a statement Friday that emissions fell in all of the EU's 27 member nations compared to 2019 as governments imposed lockdown measures to slow the spread of the virus.
