Stockholm+50 marked a milestone in our collective journey toward a healthy planet. It offers the opportunity to reflect on, celebrate and build upon 50 years of environmental action. The meeting was organized around plenary segments, three leadership dialogues and side events that was focus on the importance of multilateralism in tackling the triple planetary crisis. It was also reinforce the outcomes of the fifth UN Environment Assembly, which took place earlier this year in Nairobi, Kenya.

India is one of the few nations that have delivered on their climate action commitments and are increasing the use of renewable energy going forward, Union Environment Minister Bhupender Yadav said at the Stockholm +50 conference. Presenting India's "national statement" at the Stockholm +50 conference, Minister said India has seen large-scale inclusive economic development in the last decade by disengaging the development process from environmental degradation.
