‘India should lead global initiative on solar at UN’

Thursday, 28 October 2021 | Staff Reporter | Bhopal

It is appropriate that the country that brought “Surya Namaskar” to the world should now lead the global initiative on solar energy working with the United Nations. India, which has started the International Solar Alliance (ISA), is now going to ask the United Nations for observer status so that countries can pool in their intellectual and entrepreneurial abilities to harvest solar energy and also create bilateral platforms blending creative solutions with technical and financial mechanisms,” said Ramu Damodaran, a United Nations veteran who has worked in various UN departments for the past 25 years.

Damodaran was addressing school students and teachers at an online session of Muskaan to observe the 76th United Nations Day. The event was organized by non-profit organisation Education for All Trust in association with Prabha Khaitan Foundation, Kolkata, and supported by Shree Cement. Every year 24th October is observed as the United Nations Day as it marks the anniversary of the day in 1945 when the UN Charter came into force. The UN Day offers the opportunity to amplify our common agenda and reaffirm the purposes and principles of the UN Charter that has guided us for the past 76 years.

Referring to the UN Security Council, Damodaran said to the young audience, “India will certainly become a permanent member of the United Nations and this will happen in your lifetime and the Security Council will be enriched by it.” Damodaran alluded to some of the key ideas that will define the United Nations in the next 25 years.
