He also said ZED, ‘zero defect zero effect’, programme is very critical and is one of the top priorities of the government.
He also explained that the global pre-2020 commitments on reductions in carbon emissions were sacrosanct and emphasized that climate finance and technology transfer were critical not just for India but for many other countries that were completely dependent on a dedicated fund for combating the impact of climate change.
