World Sustainable Development Summit 2021

World Sustainable Development Summit 2021

On 10th February 2021, Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi inaugurated World Sustainable Development Summit 2021 via video conferencing. The theme of the WSDS 2021 is ‘Redefining our common future: Safe and secure environment for all’.

The Prime Minister emphasized on climate justice for fighting against climate change. Climate justice is inspired by a vision of trusteeship- where growth comes with greater compassion to the poorest.

Climate justice also means giving the developing countries enough space to grow. When each and every one of us understands our individual and/ collective duties, climate justice will be achieved.

He said that India’s intent is supported by concrete action. Powered by spirited public efforts, we are on track to exceed our commitments and targets from Paris.

We are committed to reduce emissions intensity of GDP by 33 to 35 percent from 2005 levels. He also shared that India is making steady progress on its commitment to Land Degradation Neutrality.

Renewable energy is also picking speed in India. We are well on track to setting up four fifty giga watts of Renewable Energy generating capacity by Twenty Thirty.
