To help both the countries move towards decarbonising economies in sync with their respective commitments to deal with climate change.

The dialogue would have three pillars: 

Climate Action Pillar: Under this, India and the US will develop proposals together which can contribute to curbing emissions.

Finance Mobilisation Pillar: It would involve collaborating on attracting finance to deploy 450 GW of renewable energy and demonstrate at scale clean energy technologies.

Note: India has increased its renewable energy target to 450 GW by 2030 from 175 GW by 2022. Currently, India has already achieved the target of 100GW

Adaptation and Resilience Pillar: Under this, the two countries will collaborate in building capacities to “measure and manage climate risks’. They would include setting out a roadmap to achieving the 450GW in transportation, buildings and industry.
