India hosted the COP14 – a big event but selective audience at India expo mart Noida . PM Modi spoke on the opening day and told the world in many words that India would lead by example in terms of climate change , challenges of air pollution , desertification and waste management . He pointed that to ban single use plastic India is kickstarting a nation wide campaign from Gandhi Jayanti ie 2nd of October 2019 .
I attended a few seminars on saving the forest , tree plantation and desertification . The exhibition itself was an eye opener – what countries are doing about marine litter , plastic pollution , recycling , wildlife conservation , water issues and so on .
