That’s the reason why, terming the threat of climate change as a "lived reality" for millions of people in the world, PM Modi said India's lifestyle is rooted in sustainable traditional practices and despite the county's development challenges, it has taken many bold steps on clean energy.
"Our ambitious renewable energy target of 450 Gigawatts by 2030 shows our commitment. Despite our development challenges, we have taken many bold steps on clean energy, energy efficiency, afforestation and bio-diversity," PM Modi said. "Humanity is battling a global pandemic right now and this event is a timely reminder that the grave threat of Climate Change hasn't disappeared. It is a lived reality for millions around the world," he added.
