India plans actions to achieve climate, energy goals at G20 Summit

India has laid its weight for the introduction of steps that need to be taken by developed countries for achieving climate and energy goals in the Rome Declaration after the G20 Leaders' Summit.

Piyush Goyal, India's Sherpa for the G20 and Commerce and Industries' minister, after the G20 Leaders' Summit concluded in Rome, told the media that instead of just concentrating on the climate targets, India along with other developing nations was able to include a language on what steps need to be taken, including by developed nations to accomplish these goals.

He was briefing about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's interventions and the joint effort at achieving the text of 'Rome Declaration' chosen by the G20 Leaders' Summit. It was Narendra Modi's eighth G20 Summit since 2014 and the first in-person summit since the Osaka Summit in 2019. The summit theme under the Italian Presidency was 'People, Planet, Prosperity, with an overarching theme of recovery from the pandemic.

The Prime Minister took part in all three Summit Sessions on Global Economy and Global Health, Climate Change and Environment and Sustainable Development. The leaders approved the Rome Declaration after over five days of extended negotiations.

Goyal clarified that what G20 considered and decided is global net zero, so all nations put together will be net-zero, which means that developed nations that have already enjoyed the fruits of low-cost energy for many years, will have to go in for net-zero much faster and probably even for net negative so that they can issue policy space and some carbon space for the developing nations to pursue their development agenda.
