At this virtual summit, Denmark and India entered a far-reaching green strategic partnership; an agreement that assures the solutions that India requires, and at the same time places Denmark in a unique position in relation to delivering them.
The agreement paves way for increased export and investments, where Danish solutions within wind power, water technology and energy efficiency are already in great demand in India as India will soon become the most populous country in the world. Therefore, the Indian government wants to increase its renewable energy capacity by more than 300 gigawatts by 2030 - corresponding to more than 40 times the current Danish capacity for renewable energy.
Additionally, India faces major challenges in areas such as drinking water and urban planning.This agreement supports both countries common work towards the UN's sustainable development goals, and helps Denmark reach their ambitions to reduce global CO2 emissions by 2030. Both countries ensure closer multilateral cooperation in priority areas such as green transition, trade and human rights – not just locally, but worldwide.
An important theme on the summit was Smart Cities, and the benefits of applying smart technology to the infrastructure.
