Syed Akbaruddin, who received Prime Minister Narendra Modi at the airport on Sunday, September 23, also said that the members of the Permanent Mission of India to the UN have waited for long to greet the Prime Minister.
According to the press release, leaders from government, business, and civil society announced potentially far-reaching steps to confront climate change at the United Nations Secretary-General’s Climate Action Summit in New York. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres had directed participating countries to come with concrete and realistic plans, to enhance their nationally determined contributions by 2020. The aim is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 45 per cent over the next decade, and to net zero emissions by 2050. The UN estimates that the world would need to increase its efforts between three- and five-fold to contain climate change to the levels dictated by science – a 1.5°C rise at most – and avoid escalating climate damage already taking place around the world.
