Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and a group of developing and developed countries will lauch a multi-billion clean energy research and development initiative, in which countries will commit to doubling their budgets being invested on clean energy technology research and development.

As per Reuters more than 190 countries will negotiate a new pact in Paris from Nov. 30 to Dec. 11 at the 21st U.N. Conference of the Parties summit.

France, the United States, India, South Korea, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Canada and Norway have said they will join the initiative.

India has argued that developed countries need to help poorer countries gain access to renewable energy or zero-emission technologies by helping reduce costs and removing barriers such as intellectual property rights.
