We support India’s goal to use its prestigious G-20 presidency to promote hope, peace and democracy, to strengthen the support for the most vulnerable people and nations on earth and to intensify the fight against climate change, said Lisa Badum, a member of the German Bundestag on Monday.

Badum said that our visits to New Delhi, Jaipur and Bengaluru will focus on deepening the existing exchange with members of the Indian government and parliament.

German will also stress the importance of the work of civil society organisations and startups in the fight against the climate crisis and for a just national and global energy transition, she added.

Badum is hopeful for a fruitful exchange that underlines the importance of the Indo-German partnership to promote new partnerships like the one between the G7 and India for an energy transition that aims to phase out coal and boosts sustainable growth and social justice for all.

"As head of the Subcommittee on International Climate and Energy Policy, I strongly recommended visiting India as our primary destination to highlight the importance of our brand multilateral cooperation in the face of a global climate and energy crisis," she said.

Badum termed India and Germany as robust and powerful countries. However, she said that the fight against the climate crisis will not be successful if every country fights on its own. 

According to her, both India and Germany need strong partnerships.

We especially want to highlight the bilateral partnership for green and sustainable development and use the momentum of COP-27 to stress the importance of international climate cooperation and to mobilise all efforts to reach the 1,5-degree-goal," she mentioned.
