Prime Minister Narendra Modi will participate in the Leaders’ Summit on Climate at the invitation of US President Joe Biden to be held virtually on Thursday and Friday.

The PM will make his remarks in the Leaders’ Session 1 on April 22 from 5.30 to 7.30 pm on “Our Collective Sprint to 2030”.

The US President has invited 40 world leaders, including Modi, Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping, to the summit.

The leaders will represent countries which are members of the Major Economies Forum (India is a member) and those vulnerable to climate change, among others. The leaders will exchange views on climate change, enhancing climate actions, mobilising finance towards climate mitigation and adaptation, nature-based solutions, climate security as well as technological innovations for clean energy.

They will also deliberate on how the world can align climate action with inclusive and resilient economic development, while respecting national circumstances and sustainable development priorities.

The summit is a part of a series of global meetings focusing on climate issues, being held in the run-up to COP26 in November 2021.
