India’s Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar launched a website that aims at revealing the plans regarding a combined effort bringing about a reduction in the emission of greenhouse gases. The launch, which occurred on Thursday, the 12th of November, is indeed an initiative by the country towards the Climate change summit that will be held in Paris on November 30th.
The unique feature of the website www.justclimateaction.org is that it features its content mostly as videos which are bound to get circulated at the speed of lightning through popular social media websites and applications. “The site also provides a preview of the plan that has been made to bring down the intensity of carbon emission by almost 35 percent in another 15 years, on” Said Prakash Javadekar.
What makes the website much more interesting is that it has about 40 clippings of our PM Narendra on ideals cutting down our input towards climate change.
Minister Javadekar stated, “The website includes our Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs), the appreciation received from the world over and comments on our INDCs”. He also mentioned “For the first time in the world, a developing country has put together a comprehensive action plan to realise our vision. We have brought together a platform where all our partner agencies can showcase their work,” he told reporters.With a few companies as partners, the job will be getting done easier says the Union Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, who will also be accompanying our Prime minister to the Conference in Paris.
The fact that the website is built in such a way as to enable easy sharing and circulation among the public through social media makes it a powerful tool to create awareness at a faster pace.
India has managed to submit to the UN Framework Convention, a month ago, its INDC regarding Climate Change and also about achieving the goals set up along with coping with the challenges that it would face during the endeavour.
The gathering of the world Leaders of the stated concern would be held during the 21st meeting of Conference of Parties. The topic being Climate change, the summit will go on from November 30th to December 11th. The result of the summit is foreseen to be a negotiable agreement that holds good for all the countries of the world with the common aim being maintaining global warming below 2 degree Celsius.
