Norway Climate Minister Espen Barth Eide said that there is ingenuity which is being seen in Indian science, business and academics, which is really important for the country to partner with. The minister was speaking at the 3rd International Climate Summit 2023 organised on September 14 and 15, 2023 in New Delhi.
“There’s simply no way that we can solve the climate crisis…without a strong engagement from India,” he said, adding, “It is important for the rest of us because of India’s size and population.”
The 3rd International Climate Summit 2023 built on the momentum created by the 2023 G20 New Delhi Summit. The event organised by PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI) focused on India’s vision to become the third largest economy in the world while prioritising green hydrogen, biofuels, and renewables.
Former President of India Ram Nath Kovind was the chief guest of the two-day event. Union Minister of State for Science and Technology and Earth Sciences Dr. Jitender Singh, G20 Sherpa Amitabh Kant, and ONGC Chairman and CEO Arun Kumar Singh were the other prominent guests attending the event.
The 3rd ICS summit also had delegates from across the globe, including academicians, researchers, and scholars, bureaucrats and government officials. Representatives of civil societies, diplomats, missions, and trade bodies will also participate in the two-day summit.
