Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar said that India has contributed only three percent to environmental change for the last 200 years. Whereas Europe and America have emitted unaccountable carbon in the last two hundred years and China in 40 years.
Javadekar said in the virtual 'Environment Conclave: Revival, Regeneration and Conservation of Nature' on Monday that under the Paris Agreement, developed countries had announced an amount of US $ 1.1 trillion to developing countries as compensation for damages. But this has also been discussed in the G-7 meeting on Sunday. He said that countries like Europe, America, and China have made the world economically prosperous but have polluted the world badly. He said that India is the country that has had the least impact on environmental change. The Union Minister said that according to the Paris Agreement, every year 100 billion dollars are going to be given to the developing countries for environmental change.
Meanwhile, Union Minister of Railways, Commerce and Industry Piyush Goyal said that India's agenda is to move towards a clean environment and sustainable development. He said that post-Covid, the desire to achieve environmental goals in the world will increase rapidly.
