Prime Minister Modi is expected to announce a special fund for the grouping. “This could be an initiative worth taking and a befitting investment that aids economic growth and helps fight climate change for African countries”. “All countries located between the two tropics will be partners,” an environment ministry official explained, saying countries in Africa have agreed to be part of it. “There is an agreement that the solar alliance should have its secretariat in India since it is PM Modi’s initiative.”
