Paris Summit: PM Modi promotes Indian Green Diplomacy

New Delhi: Indian Green Diplomacy was the fervor at the UN as Prime Minister Narendra Modi presented Indian point of view at the UN climate summit. He, along with US President Barack Obama and Chinese premier Xi Jinping, is among the 150 leaders meeting in Paris to promote negotiations for an ambitious climate deal to be discussed in the ongoing UN conference on climate.

Over 175 nations have nominated Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs), or pledges, to reduce their carbon emissions which, if applied, would possibly constrain global warming to 2.7°C by the end of the century. The limit set by the pledging countries is higher than the goal set by UN for keeping the temperature rise under control.

Before leaving for Paris, Modi recommended people that saving energy was an important measure to keep a tab on climate change.

“Climate change, global warming are issues of discussion and concern,” said Modi in his monthly programme Mann ki Baat.

“Energy conservation is the first solution to stop rising temperature. This is everyone’s responsibility.”

With plans to tackle global warming for 2030 on the table, representatives from approximately 200 nations would target to settle an advanced deal that would lead the world on a low-carbon growth path.

Modi, present at the UN conference, emphasized, “We will clean rivers and create smart cities. We are replacing diesel with clean energy, and building 50 new metro railways”.

He pointed out that India will have 175GW of renewables by 2022, and have imposed levies on coal and rationalize subsidies on petroleum products. Speaking on the issue of lifestyle, the PM stressed on the fact that “the lifestyles of a few must not crowd out opportunities for the many still on first steps of the development ladder.”
