Biarritz: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday highlighted India’s large scale efforts towards eliminating single-use plastic, conserving water, harnessing solar energy and, protecting flora and fauna for a sustainable future in his address to a G7 session on the environment here. Modi is attending the G7 Summit in this French town of Biarritz on the special invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron.

Addressing a session, Prime Minister Modi highlighted India’s large scale efforts towards eliminating single-use plastic, conserving water, harnessing solar energy and, protecting flora and fauna for a sustainable future.

“Reiterating India’s commitment to tackle global challenges

PM @narendramodi attended the dedicated session of #G7Biarritz summit on ‘Biodiversity, Oceans, Climate’. Underlined India’s contribution to addressing reducing biodiversity, climate change, water stress & ocean pollution,” Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar tweeted.

In the same context, Kumar tweeted later, “Powering the engine of innovation & development

PM @narendramodi led the dedicated session of #G7Biarritz summit on Digital Transformation. Highlighted India’s efforts in putting digital technology to use to fight social inequalities through empowerment & inclusion.”

In his address to the Indian community at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris last week, Modi had said India would achieve most of the COP21 climate change goals set for 2030 in the next one and half years. The 21st session of the Conference of the Parties (COP21) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) was held in Paris from 30 November to 12 December 2015 that saw the participation of 195 nations.

The nations negotiated and adopted the Paris Agreement in which India made four commitments, including reducing greenhouse gas emission intensity of its GDP by 33-35%  below 2005 levels by 2030, under its Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC). It also pledged that 40% of India’s power capacity would be based on non-fossil fuel sources and that the country will create an additional ‘carbon sink’ of 2.5 to 3 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent through additional forest and tree cover by 2030.

The country had decided to better adapt to climate change by enhancing investments in development programmes in sectors vulnerable to climate change, particularly agriculture, water resources, Himalayan region, coastal regions, health and disaster management. India had ratified the Paris agreement on climate change in 2016 to become the 62nd nation to join the deal.
