Shri Yadav said our conversation focused on exploring pathways to sustainable development, particularly focusing on the circular economy, tackling single-use plastic, forest management, and climate resilience.

In the meeting, the German delegation raised issues relating to the impact of climate change on forests, trilateral cooperation in Africa on environment and climate, circular economy, alternatives for plastics, and how both countries may further explore bilateral cooperation in these areas.         

Responding to the queries of the German delegation, Shri Yadav emphasised the importance of Mission LiFE launched by the Prime Minister. He mentioned the various steps taken by India for combatting plastic waste, alternatives for plastics, conservation of endangered species and forests, forest surveys, and agroforestry.

Shri Yadav acknowledged and appreciated the efforts made by Germany in the areas of technology, water, circular economy, and forestry through bilateral cooperation.

On the query of trilateral cooperation in Africa, the Union Environment Minister stated that the Ministry of Power is already undertaking various projects in Africa. But, for any trilateral cooperation in Africa on environment and climate, the Ministry of External Affairs has to be consulted first. As for India’s G-20, it will be guided by the motto of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, and the concerns of the Global South also need to be addressed accordingly.

Concluding the meeting, both sides agreed that they have common interests in many areas, and may further explore strengthening bilateral cooperation in new areas of biodiversity, climate change, and energy technology, among others.
