India-UN Capacity Building Initiative
Disclaimer: Copyright infringement not intended.
- India and the United Nations have jointly launched the 'India-UN Capacity Building Initiative'.
- The initiative is aimed at building the capacity of countries in the Global South.
Note: The Global South broadly comprises countries in the regions of Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia (excluding Israel, Japan, and South Korea), and Oceania (excluding Australia and New Zealand), which are generally characterized by relatively low levels of economic and industrial development.
- The goal is to share India's development experiences, best practices, and expertise through capacity-building and training programs.
- Under this capacity-building endeavor, the UN-India team and the Gates Foundation will collaborate, utilizing India's technical and economic cooperation platform to share India's development experiences and best practices worldwide.
- The initiative will also put into action the development goals established during India's G20 Presidency, including the G20 Action Plan for advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and enhancing technology and digital infrastructure.
- This initiative represents a significant step in accelerating progress toward the SDGs through South-South Cooperation, demonstrating India's commitment to strengthening its development partnership with the Global South.
