Guterres joined Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, to inaugurate the first general assembly of the International Solar Alliance, held in the Indian capital New Delhi.
 
The UN Secretary General spoke to the gathering of leaders from more than 65 countries, and reminded them that the world is far behind the "Climate-Change" target set by the Paris Agreement in December 2015. 
 
Guterres told them the world had to act faster than they were doing, in order to mitigate global warming.
 
SOUNDBITE(ENGLISH) : ANTONIO GUTERRES, UN Secretary General
"The latest data shows that current commitments under the Paris Agreement falls far short meeting the target of limiting global warming to well below 2 degrees and striving for 1.5 degrees (Celsius). The truth is that Climate-Change is still running faster than what we are. What is urgently needed is more ambition and more action. And so I welcome this very important initiative spearheaded by India and France - the International Solar Alliance represents exactly what needs to be done and represents the future."  
 
The India-headquartered International Solar Alliance is an international organisation, and so far, 65 solar-rich countries have become signatories to its framework agreement.
