PM Modi speech at UN Climate Action Summit: Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke on climate change and how India is tackling the issue during the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit in New York, US on September 23, 2019.
PM Narendra Modi began his speech by thanking the UN Secretary-General for organizing the global climate action summit. He said that this was his first opportunity to address the United Nations after receiving the ‘Champions of the Earth’ award last year and said that it was a happy coincidence that the subject was climate.
PM Modi said, “Various efforts are being made by different countries to fight climate change but we must accept that if we have to overcome a serious challenge like climate change then what we are doing at the moment is not enough.”
The Prime Minister continued by saying, “Today, we need a comprehensive approach, which will cover everything including education, values, lifestyle and development philosophy. A worldwide mass movement is the need of the hour today to bring about a behavioural change.”
