German Development Minister Svenja Schulze on Friday said that working together with India is the only way to solve the problems the world is facing.

Prior to the meeting of the G-20 development ministers in Varanasi on 11 and 12 June, the minister will have political talks in the Delhi area on 9 and 10 June and will visit development projects. 

The focus will be on global food security, the energy transition, efforts to clean up rivers and oceans, providing a clean water supply and waste management. 

Development Minister Schulze said, “All the problems affecting us worldwide also affect India. Climate change, for example, is having an especially dramatic impact in India, where extreme heat waves, droughts and flooding are being seen. At the same time, it can also be said that all the problems that can be resolved in India can very probably be resolved worldwide as well."

The minister added that we are working with India not just on the country’s own development but also in a joint effort to support sustainable development worldwide.
