    NABARD Launches Climate Strategy 2030 on World Earth Day

  • Date : 23 April, 2024

     In a significant stride towards sustainable development, NABARD has launched its Climate Strategy 2030 document on the occasion of Earth Day. The document was released by Shri Shaji K V, Chairman NABARD. This comprehensive strategy aims to address India’s escalating need for green financing.


    Despite the pressing demand, where India requires approximately US$ 170 billion annually to reach a cumulative total of over US$ 2.5 trillion by 2030, current green finance inflows are critically insufficient. As of 2019-20, India garnered about US$ 49 billion in green financing, merely a fraction of what is needed. With the majority of funds earmarked for mitigation, only US$ 5 billion was allocated towards adaptation and resilience, reflecting the minimal private sector engagement in these areas due to challenges in bankability and commercial viability.

    NABARD’s Climate Strategy 2030 is structured around four key pillars to address this demand: (i) Accelerating Green Lending across sectors, (ii) Playing a broader Market-Making Role (iii) Internal Green Transformation of NABARD, and (iv) Strategic Resource Mobilization.

    This strategic initiative not only reinforces NABARD’s commitment to environmental stewardship but also positions it as a pivotal player in India’s transition towards a resilient and sustainable economy.
