Prime Minister Narendra Modi has stressed the need for climate justice to protect the nature saying the people from poor and marginalized sections are the ultimate victims of climate injustice. 

In a video message on his selection for the prestigious UN Champions of the Earth Award, Mr Modi said as the world thinks for their welfare, it must among other things, also put emphasis on protecting nature. 

Mr. Modi said, it is not an honour for an individual but rather for the great Indian tradition which taught the value of co-existence with nature. 

The Prime Minister said he is delighted that human race has begun to recognize the importance of nature. He added that the struggle with nature has brought destruction both on humankind and on nature. He said in this changing situation, everyone is emphasizing on protecting nature and India is with the world on this issue. 

Earlier, Narendra Modi and French President Emmanuel Macron were selected for the award in the Policy Leadership category, for their efforts regarding the International Solar Alliance. 

The award recognises the efforts for promoting new areas of levels of cooperation on environmental action. This includes Mr. Modi’s pledge to eliminate all single-use plastic in India by 2022.
