Modi-style environmental protection will eventually be the long-term wind direction for India


this year

Concerns about physical health are the most common normal in human society. However, the air quality in India has always been not optimistic, especially the air pollution in North India is the most criticized.

Currently, the World Health Organization has marked New Delhi as one of the most polluted cities in the world.

For India, environmental protection is not a slogan, but just need

According to the data analysis of the Indian Ministry of Interior, air pollution is mainly related to the following factors:

One is to burn straw.

In the autumn harvest season each year, farmers burn crop residues to clean up their fields and renew fertilizer for free in order to start a new round of agricultural planting. This creates a deadly mixture of particulate matter, carbon dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide.

The second is traffic exhaust.

In order to save costs, many motor vehicle drivers in India (including tugboats) are accustomed to using adulterated fuels and releasing unsafe pollutants. As a result, exhaust emissions will naturally not meet the standards, further deteriorating air quality.

The third is thermal power plants.

India is the world's second largest coal-burning country after China, with an annual power generation capacity of 210 million kilowatts, and more than 50% of the country's electricity demand is met by thermal power stations. Fossil fuels emit a lot of greenhouse gases and also aggravate air pollution.

Therefore, environmental protection + economy, a two-pronged approach is the most preferred.

Since 2015, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been urging G20 developed and developing countries to reformulate the definition of globalization.

True globalization should focus on the collective interests of ordinary people, rather than balancing the competing interests of a few countries or individuals.

Modi often said: "Any evaluation of new technology should be people-oriented, based on the impact on the convenience and quality of life, as the applicable standard."

"G20 group countries should take decisive action, not only for economic recovery, employment and trade, but also to protect the planet."

Prime Minister Modi emphasized that in the past few decades, the world has always emphasized capital and finance, but now it should focus on the comprehensive coverage of high-tech and build a huge talent pool for this.

Especially in the 2020 new crown virus pandemic, the Indian government is more urgent for global environmental protection initiatives.

The new crown virus is the biggest challenge the world has faced since the Second World War and an important turning point in human history.

Therefore, at the 15th G20 Summit this year, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi strongly called for a new global index for the world after the new crown epidemic. This index will "host the spirit of Mother Nature" to emphasize respect for nature and environmental protection. .

The meaning of this trusteeship is: We treat the environment and nature as trustees, not owners. This will motivate us to move towards an overall environmentally healthy lifestyle. Per capita carbon footprint will be an important consideration.

The concept of "hosting nature" shows that India will pay attention to environmental protection policies, which is a core and long-term strategic decision.

To achieve this vision, Modi outlined three key elements: creating a huge talent pool; ensuring that technology covers all levels of society; and ensuring transparency in governance.

He called for greater transparency in the governance system, which will inspire our citizens to be able to respond to changes and challenges and increase their confidence. The future will also make our citizens more capable of facing public crises.

With regard to global environmental issues, this may also reflect India’s position in the climate change negotiations with the United States.

Although former US President Trump withdrew from the Paris Agreement, the good news is that the new US President Biden has promised before the election that he will rejoin the Paris Agreement, which is expected to be under the leadership of the new US President Joe Biden. Next, re-engage in discussions and negotiations.

By 2022, India will host the G20 summit, which will also be the 75th anniversary of India’s independence. The global issue of environmental protection will also accompany India’s national economic development strategy and enter the global focus of influence.

India's emphasis on environmental protection is bound to be profound and long-term. For foreign investment, the field of new energy, environmental purification and protection are all stable winds for India to go overseas in the future.
