Prime Minister Narendra Modi today urged all nations to work together to significantly decrease global emissions, and he introduced a “green credit” scheme aimed at producing carbon skins with public involvement.
PM Modi stated today at the COP28 climate meeting in Dubai that India’s emissions are quite low in comparison to other nations with considerably smaller populations.
“India’s population is 17% of the global population, but India accounts for only 4% of global carbon emissions.” We are making rapid progress toward meeting the NDC objectives. In fact, we met our non-fossil fuel commitments nine years before the deadline,” PM Modi stated, referring to the NDC, a climate action plan to reduce emissions and adapt to climate consequences.
“We don’t have much time to correct the mistakes of the previous century,” PM Modi added, urging all nations to work hard to fulfill their NDC commitments.
The Conference of Parties (COP) is a decision-making body that assesses the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) implementation.
The Environment Ministry has launched two programs that demonstrate India’s proactive approach to addressing climate change and advancing the ‘LiFE’ – ‘Lifestyle for Environment’ movement proclaimed by Prime Minister Modi in 2021.
The “green credit” program aims to promote ecologically responsible activities founded in tradition and conservation, in line with the concepts of the ‘LiFE’ concept.
India is one of the few nations on pace to meet its NDCs, which aim to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
Along with COP28 President Sultan Al Jaber and UN Climate Change President Simon Steill, PM Modi was the sole leader to attend the inaugural session.
PM Modi emphasized the need of striking a balance between mitigation and adaptation, and he stated that the global energy transition must be “just and inclusive.”
He urged wealthier countries to share technologies to assist emerging economies in combating climate change.
