New Delhi: A new study suggested that at least 57% of the urban population in India are in fear of being displaced from their homes due to warming in the next 25 years, Indian reports.

The global percentage of the same group is 38, the survey conducted by Ipsos showed. This comes out when the Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 28) takes place.

The market research company Ipsos inferred that at least six in 10 urban Indians believe the effect of climate change in their respective areas has been severe so far. Sixty-six per cent of urban Indians and 71% of global citizens expect the effect of climate change to turn more severe in the next ten years.

In a statement by Ipsos, it said, "The survey shows concern for climate change and its effect was palpable across all 29 global markets polled with at least 57% of global citizens and 61% of urban Indians perceiving effect of climate change as severe. Mexico (81%), Brazil (79%) and Turkey (79%) were most concerned about the impact of climate change."

Further, 65% of Indians believe that the government is doing enough in disseminating information to citizens on making choices on climate change.

But 59% of the global population and the majority of the citizens in Peru (81%), Argentina (81%), and Colombia (76%) believe that their respective governments are not doing enough.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has arrived in Dubai for the UN climate change conference. He has highlighted the need for climate financing and technology.

"Arrived in Dubai for the COP-28 Summit. Eagerly anticipating the proceedings that aim to build a better planet," expressed PM Modi on X. "Heartened by the warm reception from the Indian community in Dubai. Their support and enthusiasm exemplify our vibrant culture and strong connections."

He also emphasized the transfer of technology to developing nations. These measures would enable these nations to tackle the challenges presented by climate change effectively, reported AFP.
