United Nations, February 11
A top United Nations official has said that this year, more than ever, the international community counts on India for its contribution to multilateralism as a force for good — from Covid vaccines to climate action and peacekeeping.
UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, addressing the inaugural session of the World Sustainable Development Summit 2021 on Wednesday, hailed efforts by India to bolster its renewable energy basket and achieve its climate action goals.

“India is currently the only G20 country that will overachieve the objectives of its nationally determined contributions. So much has been done already,” Mohammed said.
“As India is seeking greater energy security through a revolution in solar, wind and energy storage, installing 450 gigawatts of renewable energy capacity by 2030 will bring more jobs,” she said. — PTI
