India and France have agreed to be more devoted than ever to combating climate change and discussed a partnership to ensure that environmentally friendly solutions can be created together to address the critical global issue.

According to the PTI report, India and France reaffirmed their continued support for the International Solar Alliance's (ISA) goals. This is because renewable energy development is one of the key solutions to the battle against Climate Change. A joint statement was issued after Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with French President Emmanuel Macron confirming the same.

According to a joint statement published by the two nations, renewable energy production is one of the major answers to this transformation. India and France reiterated their continuous support for the objectives of the International Solar Alliance (ISA).

The ISA was created as a cooperative initiative between India and France to mobilise efforts to combat climate change by deploying solar energy technologies. It was presented by the leaders of the two countries during the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 21st Conference of Parties (COP21) in Paris in 2015.

"Seven years after the adoption of the Paris Agreement and the joint launch of the ISA, India and France's commitment to tackle climate change is stronger than ever, both on mitigation and adaptation," the statement said. 

"As renewable energy development is one of the key solutions for this transition, India, and France reiterate their continued support to the objectives of the ISA. India and France also agreed to explore opportunities to jointly work on just energy transition pathways including under G7 to accelerate the deployment of renewables and access to affordable and sustainable energy," it said. 

India took a step further in its commitment to sustainable energy by inviting France to join its National Hydrogen Mission plan to make India a Green Hydrogen Hub, according to the statement.

On India's 75th Independence Day, Prime Minister Modi announced the National Hydrogen Mission. The mission's goal is to help the government accomplish its climate goals and turn India into a green hydrogen hub.

According to the statement, India and France are eager to promote collaboration on decarbonized hydrogen, including aspects related to regulation, certification, and standardisation of such hydrogen to build strong industrial partnerships, and have agreed to finalise a roadmap to advance this cooperation soon.
