Union Environment Minister Prakash Javadekar said on Tuesday that action on climate should not shift the climate ambition target beyond 2050 and it is important for countries to fulfill their climate commitments before 2020. Javadekar was representing India in the UN Security Council’s open discussion on “climate related risks related to international peace and security”.
The Union Minister said that the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Paris Agreement under its framework are central mechanisms for climate action. He said, “The idea of climate action should not shift to the climate ambition goal after 2050. It is important for countries to fulfill their commitments before 2020.
He said, “Although climate change does not directly or naturally lead to violent conflict, its social, political and economic factors combined with it can increase the factors of conflict and its peace, stability and security. There is a negative impact. ”
