The three global alliances floated by India as part of climate action — CDRI, IRIS and LIFE — will form the trinity of India’s environmental efforts for improving the global commons stated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
According to the reports, PM Modi said “Coalition of Disaster Resilient (CDRI), Infrastructure for Resilient Island States (IRIS) and LIFE, the one-word mantra of ‘Lifestyle for Environment’, will be a coalition of like-minded people across the world who will promote a sustainable lifestyle. I call them 3Ps — pro-planet people. This global movement of pro-planet people is the coalition for life. These three global coalitions will form the trinity of our environmental efforts for improving the global commons.”
India launched CDRI at the UN Climate Action Summit in September 2019 while IRIS was launched at the COP26 in Glasgow last year, where Modi also gave the LIFE mantra as an appeal for combined climate action. The theme for this year’s event is ‘Towards a Resilient Planet: Ensuring a Sustainable and Equitable Future’.
Modi also recounted the various steps taken by India as part of its climate action. They are land restoration, Ujwala Yojana, LED bulbs, renewable energy, including solarisation of agriculture pumps, among others. He also spoke of a whole of the world approach and highlighted the International Solar Alliance. Modi reminded the world about how India’s tradition ensured living life in harmony with nature.
