In January 2022, Nashik became the fifth city in Maharashtra to announce a municipal-level climate action plan. Now there are 40 other cities in the state formulating roadmaps for adaptation and mitigation of the climate crisis. Mumbai aims to become net-zero by 2050 and has a plan for it. Information Technology (IT) hub, Bengaluru, announced similar net-zero goals. More Indian cities will follow, bringing India — the only country in the G20 on track to meet its climate commitments — in line with developed countries where centre-driven action is moving towards a city-driven approach.
