Salient Points of PM Modi’s address at the inauguration of World Sustainable Development Summit (WSDS 2018) on 16 Feb, 2018

Living in harmony with nature is a part of India’s value system.

India believes in growth and is committed to protecting the environment.

Our Government is working towards providing basic amenities like electricity and clean cooking solutions.

With growing urbanization our transportation needs are growing too. But we are focusing on mass transportation systems especially metro rail systems. Even for cargo movement to long distances, we have started working on national water-way systems. Each of our states is preparing an action plan against climate change.

Collaboration between governments, between industries, and between people. The developed world can help us achieve them faster.

We are here today to act upon the belief that we as humans can make a difference to this planet. We need to understand that this planet, our Mother Earth, is one. And so, we should rise above our trivial differences of race, religion, and power, and act as one to save her.
