‘India will engage all countries on climate change’

The Indian team that will participate in the upcoming conference in Lima in December will engage all countries on the agenda that the world must come together and take on the challenge of climate change.

Union Minister of State for Forest and Environment Prakash Javadekar who met journalists after his visit to the M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation here on Saturday said, “We are looking at clean air, clean water and clean energy. We will impress upon the developed world that they walk the talk. We are taking the approach that all parties will take up the responsibility.”

The Minister sought inputs from the Foundation that could be used to advance India’s role in mitigating the concerns on food security.

“The Foundation has given a basic input on how the farmer should be compensated by arriving at real remunerative cost and that has set a benchmark for discussion. It also said that food security must take into account the productivity of eastern part of India,” which was fundamental to sustained green revolution, he said. According to him, the success the country had achieved at the World Trade Organisation by extending the peace clause till an acceptable formula was arrived at was a great victory to India.
