Today, Prime Minister Narendra attended the Climate Summit 2020 hosted by US President Joe Biden. Modi emphasized the need for concrete action to combat the ‘Climate Change’. “We need such action at a high speed, on a large scale, and with a global scope,” he added.
To achieve the goals, PM Modi along with US President Biden launched the ‘India-US Climate and Clean Energy Agenda 2030 Partnership’. For this purpose, both the nations agreed to mobilize investments, demonstrate clean technologies, and enable green collaborations.
In the meeting, he thanked US President Biden for the invitation. He lauded that despite the development challenges, India has undertaken multiple steps to ensure clean and efficient energy, along with afforestation and bio-diversity. “Our ambitious renewable energy target of 450 Gigawatts by 2030 shows our commitment,” he said.
Modi mentioned that as a ‘climate responsible’ developing country, the nation also welcomes partners to create templates of sustainable development in India. He figured out that this idea would also help other developing countries to get access to green finance and clean technologies.
Pointing out the traditional lifestyle and sustainable traditional practices, Modi stated India’s per capita carbon footprint is 60 percent lower than the global average. He also expressed his concern over the ongoing global pandemic.
