UN Climate Change Summit Highlights: 'The Time For Talking Is Over. The World Needs To Act Now': PM Modi

UN Climate Change Summit Today: PM Modi said India would increase the share of non-fossil fuel energy.

New Delhi: 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that the world was not doing enough to tackle the climate crisis, calling for "global behavioural change" at the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York. "We must accept that if we have to overcome such serious challenge, then what we are doing today is not enough. What we need is global behavioural change," he said. "India is here today not just to talk about this serious issue but to present a roadmap. In India, we are going to increase renewable energy capacity," PM Modi added. Eighty countries have joined India's solar alliance imitative, he said.
"India is launching a coalition for disaster resilient infrastructure. I invite all world leaders for this coalition," he said.

PM Modi said India would increase the share of non-fossil fuel energy. "We are going to increase our renewable energy capacity to 175 GW by 2022, and are committed to further increasing it to 450 GW," he said. India had set the 175 GW target as part of its commitment to the 2015 Paris Climate agreement. "The time for talks is over. The world needs to act now," PM Modi said in the presence of US President Donald Trump, who made an unscheduled appearance at the UN summit. The Prime Minister's address comes a day after the two leaders shared the stage at a grand event in Houston and displayed close friendship and a common vision on fighting terrorism.

PM Among First Set Of Speakers At UN Climate Summit. Why It's Significant
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is expected to articulate his government's ambitions on renewable energy and make a call for a coalition for disaster resilient infrastructure at UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres' High-Level Climate Action Summit on Monday. PM Modi is among the first set of speakers at the Summit's opening ceremony, a highly significant gesture given that only those Heads of State, Government and Ministers are invited to speak at the summit who will have any "positive development" to announce on climate action. India's important role and contribution to global climate action efforts have been underlined by the fact that PM Modi is the fourth speaker at the Summit, after UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and President of Marshall Islands Hilda Heine. German Chancellor Angela Merkel will speak after PM Modi.
