Washington: Known for its pioneering environmental effort, California has agreed to help India reduce air pollution and combat climate change, State Governor Jerry Brown said after his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the weekend.
The global fight against climate change was the center of discussion when Brown met Modi in San Jose over the weekend.
The Governor and the Prime Minister agreed to a partnership between California and India, in which California would provide expertise to help India reduce air pollution and combat climate change, said a statement issued by his office.
“California and India have a very close and very dynamic relationship,” said the Governor.
“California has pioneered cleaning up the air and cleaning up the environment over many years. Collaboration on a regulatory and technical level could be helpful. There’s a lot to do,” Brown said in the statement.
The meeting with Prime Minister Modi is the latest in a series between Governor Brown and world leaders.
In Seattle last week, Brown met with Chinese President Xi Jinping after co-chairing the Third US-China Governors Forum.
