New Delhi: Stating that India and Germany are robust and powerful countries, Member of the German Bundestag Lisa Badum vouched for strong partnership for an energy transition that aims to phase-out coal and boosts sustainable growth and social justice for all.
In a statement, Badum said: “As head of the Subcommittee on International Climate and Energy Policy, I strongly recommended to visit India as our primary destination to highlight the importance of our bi and multilateral cooperation in the face of a global climate and energy crisis.”
“We want to emphasize our solid support for India’s goal - as formulated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi - to use its prestigious G20 presidency in 2023 to promote hope, peace, and democracy, to strengthen the support for the most vulnerable people and nations on earth, and to intensify the fight against climate change.”
“Our visits to New Delhi, Jaipur, and Bengaluru will focus on deepening the existing exchange with members of the Indian government and parliament, on visiting lighthouse projects of renewable energy and mobility, and on stressing the importance of the work of civil society organisations and start-ups in the fight against the climate crisis and for a just national and global energy transition,” Badum said.
“We hope for a fruitful exchange that underlines the importance of our partnership and we aim to promote new partnerships like the one between the G7 and India for an energy transition that aims to phase-out coal and boosts sustainable growth and social justice for all.”
