EU – India Cooperation on Climate Change – The EU-India Clean Energy and Climate Partnership When it comes to climate change, Europe is committed to act but also to support and to work together with other countries to mitigate and adapt to climate change. With the EU Green Deal at the core of our domestic and external policies, cooperation with India in the area of climate change and the clean energy transition is a key priority under our EU-India Strategic Partnership. The current EU-India climate and energy relations are guided by the India-EU Clean Energy and Climate Partnership that was agreed at the EU-India Summit on 30 March 2016 with the aim of reinforcing cooperation on clean energy and implementation of the Paris Agreement. This partnership was reconfirmed in the joint statement at the EU-India Summit on 6 October 2017. In the Joint Statement and the EU-India Strategic Partnership: A Roadmap to 2025 agreed at the EU-India Summit on 15 July 2020, as well as the EU-India Leaders Meeting on 8 May 2021, the cooperation under the Clean Energy and Climate Change was again welcomed. It was agreed that the 2016 EU-India Clean Energy and Climate Partnership should be strengthened. At the 8 May Leaders Meeting also a new Connectivity Partnerships was agreed.
