Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar has urged leaders of developed countries to ensure availability of technology and resources to other nations to aid their fight against climate change.
Speaking in a panel debate on boosting global action on climate change organised in French Embassy today, Mr. Javadekar asserted that India is the only G-20 country to walk the talk and fulfill all its promises as per the Paris Climate Agreement.
He said despite having considerable constraints in terms of land mass and availability of resources, the country has over achieved on all fronts of climate agreement.
Environment Minister informed that the centre keeps on reviewing its goals and achievements and has considerably increased its targets in terms of cutting down usage of carbon fuels and other emissions.
He reaffirmed India’s commitment to harness resources of renewable energy to its maximum potential and ensure green and clean energy.
Highlighting the imposition of carbon tax on traditional fuels, the minister said the centre is focussed to increase production & usage of bio-fuels and promote vehicles driven on clean energy.
Promising a sustainable growth path for everyone, Mr. Javadekar appealed to every nation not to indulge in business of profiteering from avenues of disaster.
Terming climate change as a cause of global concern, he called for a united fight from every quarter with a promise to support the under developed nations to help them achieve their climate agreement goals.
