Alok Sharma and Narendra Modi met yesterday during the COP26 President's visit to India.
COP26 President Designate Alok Sharma and Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi met yesterday in Delhi to discuss their countries’ shared commitment to climate action in the lead up to the COP26 summit in Glasgow this year.
Mr Sharma congratulated PM Modi on his ambition to deliver a significant increase in renewable energy, set out at the Climate Ambition Summit the UK co-hosted in December 2020, and for his personal leadership on tackling climate change.
Mr Sharma outlined the UK’s net zero commitment and said that, as hosts of COP26, the UK had sent a clear message to the world in setting an ambitious new Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC).
They agreed that progress on making sure the most vulnerable countries were able to adapt to the impacts of climate change was critical and that to do this governments must meet their climate finance commitments.
Mr Sharma and PM Modi also discussed the importance of governments, businesses and individuals working to tackle climate change and said they looked forward to continuing their close work ahead of COP26.
