US Climate Envoy John Kerry to visit India on Sunday
On his visit, John Kerry will meet with his Indian counterparts and private sector leaders
US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry will land in India on Sunday on a three-day visit to engage with international counterparts on efforts to address the climate crisis, the US State Department said in a press release on Friday.
On his visit, Kerry will meet with Government of India counterparts and private sector leaders to discuss efforts to raise global climate ambition and speed India’s clean energy transition, added the release.
During his visit, the United States and India will launch the Climate Action and Finance Mobilization Dialogue (CAFMD), one of the two main tracks of the US-India Agenda 2030 Partnership that President Biden and Prime Minister Modi announced at the Leaders Summit on Climate in April 2021.
The Special Envoy’s travel will bolster the United States bilateral and multilateral climate efforts ahead of the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which will be held October 31 to November 12, 2021, in Glasgow, United Kingdom. Last week, he travelled to Japan and China for talks with officials.
In April, the US Special envoy spoke to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about how the US could help mobilize finance to reduce risks in producing alternative energy in the fight against global warming.
