Developing countries least to blame for carbon emissions says Union Minister Bhupender Yadav

Mohali, May 9

Union Minister for Environment, Forests and Climate Change Bhupender Yadav has stated that India’s role in leading the fight for environmental protection is very crucial.

“Developing countries like India contribute least to global carbon emissions and therefore the western industrialised nations must shoulder a bulk of the financial burden for combating climate change,” said Yadav while speaking at the valedictory session of the two-day international conference on “Environmental Diversity and Environmental Jurisprudence: National and International Perspective” organised by Chandigarh University, Gharuan.
