Union Cabinet decides to ratify Paris Agreement


The Central cabinet on Wednesday has definite to ratify the Paris agreement on climate change.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi chaired a cabinet meeting and the decision for the same was taken.

“Today the cabinet has decided to ratify Paris agreement,” Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar told media.

Modi on Sunday informed that India will give a formal consent to the Paris Climate deal on 2nd October (Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary) to combat the climate change.

The agreement has been ratified by 61 countries but the implementation of the same demands 55 percent of world emission.

He further said that there was around 3.5 percent of shortage in order to cross the “55 per cent pollution barrier” and with India ratifying the agreement it would be complete.

“India became a decisive partner in the ratification process,” he said.

Javadekar said the Paris agreement will get implemented post-2020 and India will seek action from the developed world in the pre-2020 period.
