Breaking: World Sustainable Development Summit 2024: Vice-President Dhankhar Advocates for Environmental Protection and Climate Justice

At the World Sustainable Development Summit 2024 in New Delhi, Vice-President Jagdeep Dhankhar emphasized the urgent need for global leadership in driving environmental protection and climate justice. This high-profile event, attended by dignitaries such as Prime Minister of Guyana, Mark Phillips, and India’s Union Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Bhupender Yadav, served as a platform for discussions on responsible use of natural resources and the importance of balancing economic growth with ecological preservation.

Embracing Sustainable Development

During his keynote speech, Vice-President Dhankhar called for a shift towards cleaner, renewable energy sources and underlined the necessity of integrating environmental protection and climate justice into societal norms. Echoing Mahatma Gandhi’s timeless wisdom, he stated that the Earth has enough to satisfy everyone’s needs, but not greed. His words highlight the precarious balance between consumption and preservation, and the dire consequences of tipping the scales towards the former.

India’s Role in Global Environmental Efforts

Vice-President Dhankhar praised India’s proactive role in global environmental efforts and reiterated the nation’s commitment to sustainable development. He referenced India’s G20 Presidency, which underscores the message of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ – ‘One Earth, One Family, One Future.’ This sentiment encapsulates the essence of collective action, a crucial component in addressing the pressing environmental and climate challenges we face today.

Implications of the New Delhi Declaration

The Vice-President’s address also shed light on the significance of the New Delhi Declaration made at the G20 Summit. The Summit, organized by The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), focused on the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the interconnected framework designed to tackle environmental challenges. The release of the policy brief titled ‘SDG Blueprint on Sustainable Agriculture’ further emphasized the vital role of sustainable agriculture in fast-tracking the sustainable development agenda.
