G20 summit: PM Modi said- 'By 2030, 26 million hectares of barren land will be made fertile'


Prime Minister Narendra Modi gave a fundamental mantra for rapid progress to the world at the G20 Summit. He said the world can progress rapidly only by providing detailed technical cooperation and financial support to developing countries.

G20 meeting informed about India's major steps on climate change

He called on all countries to fight climate change not behind closed doors but in an integrated, comprehensive, and holistic manner. Along with making a big announcement, PM Modi also set a target to make 26 million hectares of barren land fertile again for India by 2030.

Prime Minister Modi addressed the event organized on the second day of the G20 conference on the theme of 'Protection of the planet: Circular carbon economy approach'. He said, India is not only following the Paris Agreement but is showing more work than that. He said, for the prosperity of humanity, every person has to prosper.

Instead of seeing labor as the sole factor of production, attention should be paid to the human dignity of every worker. This approach will provide the best guarantee for the security of the home. The G20 summit is being held in a virtual manner, this time under the chairmanship of Saudi Arabia.

Sharing the stake through video conferencing, PM Modi said, "At the time of Kovid-19 (Coronavirus), our focus is on protecting the citizens and the economy from the epidemic, but it is equally important to focus on the fight against climate change. PM Modi said that in this hour of crisis, there is a golden opportunity for us to make new discoveries and invent new things with the help of science. India has worked in many areas related to climate change.

Modi referred to the International Solar Alliance (ISA) towards climate change and described it as the fastest-growing international organization with 88 members. He said that with plans to raise billions of dollars, train thousands of stakeholders and promote research and development in renewable energy, ISA is contributing to reducing the carbon footprint.
