In new role as G-20 chair, India set to focus on climate

India has officially taken up its role as chair of the Group of 20 leading economies for the coming year and it’s putting climate at the top of the group’s priorities.

According to experts, some of the key areas that India will focus on during its presidency includes programs to encourage sustainable living and money for countries to transition to clean energy and deal with the effects of a warming world. India is also expected to use its new position to boost its climate credentials and act as a bridge between the interests of industrialised nations and developing ones.
