U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry will visit India from Sept. 12-14 “to discuss efforts to boost global climate ambition and speed India’s clean energy transition,” the State Department said on Friday.
On his visit, Mr. Kerry will meet together with his Indian counterparts and personal sector leaders, the department said during a statement.
Mr. Kerry is laying the groundwork for U.S. participation within the 26th United Nations global climate change Conference of the Parties, or COP26, which can be held in Glasgow on Oct. 31-Nov 12. He traveled last week to Japan and China for talks with officials.
n April, Mr. Kerry spoke with Prime Minister Narendra Modi about how we could help mobilize finance to scale back risks in producing energy within the fight against heating.
India is that the world’s third-biggest emitter of greenhouse gases after China and therefore us, albeit with far lower emissions per capita than those countries.
