New Delhi, August 18

India is committed to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its Paris Agreement, Union Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav said on Wednesday, while extending support to the UK which will host the international climate conference COP-26 in November.

“World needs concrete actions in terms of climate finance and technology transfer by the developed countries,” Yadav reiterated in his meeting with COP-26 President-Designate (UK) Alok Sharma, where issues, including those related to climate change, upcoming conference and India-UK 2030 roadmap, were discussed.

“India believes that climate actions must be nationally determined and strongly advocates that the differentiation and operationalisation of flexibility provided in the UNFCCC and Paris Agreement for developing countries should be at the core of decision making,” said Yadav.

Reiterating Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s focus on climate justice while fighting climate change, Yadav mentioned global initiatives spearheaded by India to tackle climate change.

Meanwhile, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman also met Sharma and discussed issues related to climate change, specifically COP-26.

Stating that India is among the few G20 countries on track towards UNFCCC and Paris Agreement goals and has taken decisive actions to tackle climate change, the FM expressed hope that the commitment made by the developed countries to provide $100 billion per year to developing countries would be achieved.
