He will deliver a speech on India's Strategy to contain global warming and its serious consequences on the opening day of the conference on Monday at the Leaders Event of the conference.

The Prime Minister is also expected to speak on steps taken by India to reduce its carbon footprint and on serious consequences of the global warming.

The aim of the conference is to build an alliance capable of keeping the average global temperature rise below 2 degree Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels and adapt our societies to existing disruption.

Keeping in view its development agenda, particularly eradication of poverty and following low carbon path, India has communicated its strategy to reduce emission intensity of its GDP by 33 to 35 percent.

Modi will also launch a Solar Alliance, co-chaired by France President, Francois Hollande.

India's strategy at the Paris Climate Change Summit will be to work with emerging economies and press the developed world to concede the responsibility for cutting carbon emissions after 2020 which can not be shared equally by rich and poor countries.
