PM Modi. G20 India

Realising the need for greater space collaboration and its impact on humanity, India proposed at the G20 Summit on September 9 to launch the ‘G20 Satellite Mission for Environment and Climate Observation.’

Spearheading the G20 Summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “You are all familiar with the success of India’s Moon Mission, Chandrayaan. The data obtained from it will be beneficial for all of humanity. With the same spirit, India is proposing the launch of the G20 Satellite Mission for Environment and Climate Observation.”

The proposal was made in the presence of world leaders, including US President Joe Biden, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, and South Africa President Cyril Ramaphosa, among others.

India’s might in the space domain is well known around the world. Notably, the country has been successful in carrying out various ground-breaking space missions and has well-established itself as one of the prominent players in the space sector.

By deploying advanced satellites for environmental and climate observation, India aims to provide invaluable data and insights to tackle the pressing challenges of climate change and natural disasters.

This initiative holds the potential to revolutionise climate monitoring on a global scale, fostering international collaboration and solidarity in the pursuit of a sustainable and resilient future for all nations.
