Singh is likely to underline India’s commitment to a low-carbon future that aims to transform the energy landscape by accelerating clean innovations under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“Very little has been done despite a lot of talk over the last 50 years since the 1972 Stockholm Conference. But in India, we have walked the talk and [taken] steps like 90 million households getting access to clean cooking fuel under Ujjwala Yojana...,” said Singh, who was due to leave for the US on Monday.

Singh said he is looking forward to engagements at the plenary and roundtables of the forum, especially in the light of recent breakthroughs in the areas of clean energy technologies both at home and abroad.

He will also hold a roundtable with executives of about 35 companies and federal representatives associated with geospatial, space, earth and ocean science, pharma, and biotech sectors in Washington DC as well as interact with academics and the Indian diaspora.
