UK, India working to tackle climate change, says Britain’s South Asia minister

UK, India working to tackle climate change, says Britain’s South Asia minister

Britain's South Asia minister Lord Tariq Ahmad said there is scope for expanding existing work to tackle climate change, ahead of the UN COP26 climate summit in Glasgow in November.

London: The UK and India are working to expand research and collaboration links to tackle climate change, Britain’s South Asia minister said on Saturday as he concluded a five-day tour of India.

Lord Tariq Ahmad, Minister of State for South Asia and the Commonwealth in the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) said science and technology partnerships between the UK and India are already playing a vital role to tackle the most pressing global challenges, including ending the COVID-19 pandemic through joint work to provide doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, manufactured in India, to developing countries.

He also flagged a huge scope for expanding existing work to tackle climate change ahead of the United Nations COP26 climate summit, to be held in Glasgow in November.

The UK and India have an invaluable partnership, including tackling COVID-19, with the Serum Institute of India manufacturing doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine drawing our brightest minds together to save lives as a global force for good, said Lord Ahmad.

India has quadrupled wind and solar capacity in the last decade and committed to net zero emissions in the Indian Railways by 2030. I saw first-hand how we can work even more closely together on tackling climate action by sharing our solutions and expertise. Deepening UK-India collaboration will be crucial to building up to a successful outcome at COP26, he said.
