G20 Satellite Mission for Environment and Climate Observation

Earlier, speaking at the opening session of trhe Summit, PM Modi said you are all familiar with the success of India's Moon Mission, Chandrayaan-3. 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.'

We have also launched the 'National Green Hydrogen Mission' in India to boost green hydrogen production. During India's G-20 presidency, we have also taken significant steps toward creating a Global Hydrogen Ecosystem, the PM added.
