India among top 10 countries voicing against climate change: report

Madrid: India has been included in the top ten countries in this year's Climate Change Performance Index (CCPI) for the first time. At the same time, America has joined the worst performing countries for the first time. The CCPI report was released on Tuesday at the 'Cop 25' climate change conference in Spain's capital Madrid. The report said that the current level of per capita emissions and energy use in India is ranked ninth in the "high grade".
However, it is still relatively low. However, despite the high ratings for the performance of its climate policy, experts say that the Indian government is yet to come up with a roadmap to reduce the subsidy on fossil fuels in a phased manner resulting in the country's dependence on coal... The report noted that 31 out of 57 high-emission countries have reported declining levels of emissions. These countries account for 90 percent of emissions.

"The new climate change performance index shows signs of a global shift in emissions, including a reduction in coal consumption," said Ursula Hagen, one of the authors of the index jointly presented by Germanwatch, the Nucleite Institute, and Climate Action Network. Sweden is fourth and Denmark is fifth in this index. China, the largest global emitter, has improved its ranking in the index to 30th place marginally.
Only two G20 countries Britain (7th) and India (9th) are ranked in the "high" category while eight countries in the G20 remain in the worst category (very low) of the index. Australia (56th out of 61), Saudi Arabia and especially the US are among the poorly performing countries. America joins the worst-performing country for the first time.
