 Meeting Climate Challenge Will Require Concerted Action by India and USA, and the International Community

United States of America President Barack Obama and India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi share a deep concern regarding the climate challenge and understand that meeting it will require concerted action by their countries and the international community.

USA and India recognize that global climate change is a profound threat to humanity and to the imperatives of sustainable development, growth and the eradication of poverty. Both the leaders stressed the importance of enhancing their bilateral cooperation on adaptation measures, as well as joint research and development and technology innovation, adoption and diffusion for clean energy and efficiency solutions that will help achieve the goals of transitioning to a climate resilient and low carbon economy. They also stressed on the importance of working together and with other countries to conclude an ambitious climate agreement in Paris in 2015.
