Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday virtually addressed the World Economic Forum(WEF) at its online Davos Agenda summit. He proposed the idea of s “P3 (Pro-Planet-People) movement” that underscores India’s commitments to climate change at the global forum.
Recollecting the fact that earlier he had introduced a similar proposal- ‘Mission L.I.F.E – Lifestyle for Environment’ at the COP26 climate summit in the previous year, Modi summoned that the P3 movement will now aid India to accomplish its sustainable environmental goals.
In his WEF Davos Agenda summit, the Prime Minister reiterated India’s “clean, green, sustainable, and reliable” energy goals which dwell on achieving a net-zero carbon mission target by 2070. Talking about lifestyle changes that must be made to set forth climate commitments, Modi said, “We have to accept that our lifestyle is also a big challenge for the climate.”
“Throwaway culture and consumerism have resulted the climate challenge more serious and vulnerable,” the Prime Minister said, adding, “It is significant for Mission ‘LIFE’ to transform a global mass movement.” On November 1st in the previous year, Modi had vowed at the Glasgow summit on climate change that India’s renewable resources capacity will reach 500GW by 2030, meeting 50% of the country’s energy necessities by 2030.
He had said that India will mitigate its total projected carbon emissions by one billion tonnes in the period of present to 2030, reduce the carbon intensity of India’s economy by 45% by 2030 over 2005 levels, and reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2070. Modi, however, had signalled that these aspiring and determined actions would be impossible in the absence of adequate climate finance aid from developed nations.
