Dr. R. Seetharaman was also the keynote speaker at the event, where he shared insights on global scenarios.

He said  the G20 countries – which account for 85 percent of global GDP and 80 percent of CO2 emissions – should adopt a combination of pro-growth and pro-environment policies in developing their overall growth and development strategies.

Strengthening climate mitigation policies, including carbon pricing, fossil fuel subsidy reform, smart regulations and the use of public procurement would help drive low-carbon innovation.

Scale up efforts to mobilise private investment in low-emission and climate resilient infrastructure through further efforts to green the finance system. Sustainable development involves people & supports community building.

He said technology from AI to 5G has the power to transform public safety, education, transportation, manufacturing and energy.

Digital solutions with the potential to reduce emissions can be applied in sectors such as agriculture, building, energy, manufacturing, and mobility, in addition to software and apps to capture and quantify efficiency gains.

Technology transformation is the key source for sustainable development”
