"Over a period of two decades, the Summit has evolved into a pre-eminent platform to foster dialogue, collaboration, and action on sustainability and combating climate change. Through the involvement of a number of Heads of State, as well as thousands of delegates, the WSDS has catalysed partnerships and collective action to address one of the most urgent challenges of our times," PM Modi said.

Focussing on this year's summit theme, "Leadership for Sustainable Development and Climate Justice", Prime Minister Modi said that it underscores the need for bold steps, decisive action and a clear direction towards a more sustainable and equitable future.

Similarly, efforts like International Solar Alliance, Coalition of Disaster Resilience Infrastructure, Swachh Bharat Mission, PM KUSUM and PM Suryodaya Yojana are ensuring that India leads the way towards devising effective and innovative solutions that champion inclusion as well as the environment.
