India signed Paris climate change agreement

New Delhi has formally joined the Paris deal agreed to by 200 countries in the French capital last year. India is the world's third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases.

"India has deposited its instrument of ratification of the Paris agreement with the United Nations," the UN said in a statement Sunday. India's Minister of State for Environment, Anil Madhav Dave, posted a message on Twitter announcing the move.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced last month that New Delhi would ratify the agreement on October 2, Mahatma Gandhi's birthday.

Two hundred countries agreed to join the UN's efforts to tackle climate change, signing the deal in Paris last year. The accord required countries to achieve goals of limiting a global rise in temperature to below two degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels.

With India's entry, a total of 62 countries, accounting for almost 52 percent of global emissions, have agreed to stem rising temperatures on the planet. India accounts for over four percent of international carbon emissions and has not agreed to cap emissions; instead it says it will use more green energy. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has also insisted that rich countries shoulder a larger burden of reducing emissions, because they have polluted the most since the Industrial Revolution.
