On this occasion, Aryanto delivered his presentation entitled Advancing “Just” in the Transition to Net Zero Emission Through G20 Agenda.

He underlined the importance for C20 India to promote accountability for commitments from previous G20 meetings.

In addition, Aryanto also reminded whether the results of the G20 related to the achievement of Net Zero Emission have adopted aspects of justice in its implementation.
