The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, and the President of France, Mr. Francois Hollande, today travelled by metro train from Delhi to Gurgaon, for the foundation stone laying ceremony of the International Solar Alliance.

In his address at the event, the Prime Minister recalled how the world has been thinking of how to tackle the challenge of climate change. He mentioned that on the sidelines of the CoP 21 meeting in Paris, two significant initiatives were taken. One of these was “Mission Innovation” which aims to make clean energy more easily accessible for people through innovations in technology. The other was the International Solar Alliance, which aims at bringing together countries with abundant sunshine, to harness the power of the sun.

The Prime Minister said the International Solar Alliance will work as a lifeline for people facing the brunt of climate change. In this context, he mentioned small island nations facing the threat of rising sea levels.
