Addressing COP13 delegates in Gandhinagar via video conferencing from Delhi, Modi said India has been championing climate action based on values of conservation, sustainable lifestyle and green development model.

He also said that India is also working to conserve migratory birds. "India has prepared a national action plan to conserve migratory birds along the Central Asia flyway," he said.
