India Ratifies Paris Agreement On Climate Change: All You Need To Know

India on Sunday ratified the Paris Agreement on climate change, becoming the 62nd country to join the nascent pact finalised in the French capital last December and putting the ten-month-old global deal on the fast track to an early entry in force, possibly by next month.

“Care & concern towards nature is integral to the Indian ethos. India is committed to doing everything possible to mitigate climate change,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi posted on Twitter, after India’s permanent representative to the United Nations Syed Akbaruddin handed over the instrument of ratification to Santiago Villalpando, chief of Treaty Section at the UN’s Office of Legal Affairs.
