Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that India will lead in promoting green economy including conservation of mountain ecology with people’s participation.
“India has the distinction of having a population of almost 2,970 tigers. India has achieved its target of doubling the number of targets two years before the committed date of 2022. India would be taking a leading role in promoting green economy including conservation of mountain ecology with people’s participation,” said PM Modi.

A green economy is defined as low carbon, resource-efficient and socially inclusive. In a green economy, growth in employment and income are driven by public and private investment into such economic activities, infrastructure and assets that allow reduced carbon emissions and pollution, enhanced energy and resource efficiency, and prevention of the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
