He stated this in a video message at the World Environment Day event in New Delhi.

He added that with this they achieved the goals of development but the world's environment had to pay the price.

He also highlighted the initiatives including Green Hydrogen Mission, which focuses on natural farming and a green economy. Mr. Modi said, on the one hand, if India has expanded its 4G and 5G network, it has also enhanced its forest cover.

 

The Prime Minister further added that while India built 4 crore houses for the poor, there has been a record increase in the number of Wildlife Sanctuaries as well as wildlife in India. The Prime Minister also touched upon the Jal Jeevan Mission and the construction of 50 thousand Amrit Sarovars for water security, India becoming the 5th largest economy in the world and also joining the top 5 countries in renewable energy, increasing agricultural exports and also running a campaign for blending 20 per cent ethanol in petrol. He also stated that India has become the base of organizations like the Coalition for Disaster Resilient Infrastructure - CDRI, and the International Big Cat Alliance.

Speaking about mission LiFE i.e. Lifestyle for Environment becoming a public movement, the Prime Minister highlighted that the mission is spreading a new consciousness about lifestyle changes to combat climate change.

 

During the event, Amrit Dharohar Implementation Strategy and Mangrove Initiative for Shoreline Habitats and Tangible Incomes (MISHTI) were launched. The Prime Minister said, Amrit Dharohar Yojana will ensure the conservation of these Ramsar sites through public participation. He said, Mishti Yojana will help in reviving as well as protecting the mangrove ecosystem of the country.
