Hon’ble CM’s first book on Climate Change written in English titled “Convenient Action Gujarat's Response to Challenges of Climate Change” published by Macmillan Publishers is scheduled to be launched on 21st December, Tagore Hall, Ahmedabad.
“Convenient Action- Gujarat’s Response to Challenges of Climate Change”, written by Shri Narendra Modi, is an illustrative book containing successful examples of the policy and programmatic initiatives for dealing with Climate Change which he has undertaken during the last few years in the State of Gujarat, India. The book explicitly documents the development philosophy that forms the core of his public policy and how it has contributed to both adaptation and mitigation of Climate Change.
In a field more marked by debates and discourses, the book stands distinct in its emphasis on action and how a conscious Climate Change Policy can bring in visible results. The book thus caters to a wide cross section of readers which includes policy makers, scientists, research scholars, students, writers and the general public at large.
Former President of India Dr APJ Abdul Kalam will preside over the function.
The Chief Guest of Honour at the function, Dr. Dr RK Pachauri, the chief of Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), praised Hon’ble CM saying, "I am very happy that Narendra Modi has written this book. I haven't seen it but the very fact that he's focussed on this is worth praising."
Steve Howard, CEO, The Climate Group, praised Shri Narendra Modi for his move and said, “I would call this unique compendium of action a Green Autobiography of Narendra Modi who has shown a definite path and determined strategy to meet the Challenges of Climate Change.”
