The National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) and World Resources Institute (WRI) India on Monday announced the ‘Leaders in Climate Change Management (LCCM) program. Union Minister for Housing and Urban Affairs Hardeep Singh Puri launched the learning program and a half-day workshop to build capacities among climate leaders in Indian cities.
“It is most appropriate and fitting that we are launching the (LCCM) program today immediately after the celebration of World Environment Day yesterday. This program is another initiative in a long line of government interventions to not only combat climate change but also to build a new path of sustainable development that fulfills our economic conditions”, said the Union Minister.
Puri said, “In the last eight years, the Modi government has taken many concrete steps in pushing the sustainability agenda forward. At COP26 in Glasgow, the PM announced India’s aggressive agenda on climate change through the Panch Amrit action plan which envisages India becoming a net-zero emission country by 2070.”
The LCCM program will not only identify hundreds of climate leaders but also focuses on how these leaders can be oriented in terms of their training and how they will move forward. “The very fact that we are thinking about this is a revolutionary step,” he said.
