Context: The ‘India-UN Capacity Building Initiative’ has been jointly initiated by the United Nations and India.
The effort aims to increase the Global South countries’ capacity.
Note: The countries in Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia (apart from South Korea, Japan, and Israel), and Oceania (apart from Australia and New Zealand) that make up the Global South are generally considered to have relatively low levels of industrial and economic development.
India’s development experiences, best practices, and knowledge are intended to be shared via training and capacity-building initiatives.
The UN-India team and the Gates Foundation will work together on this capacity-building project, sharing India’s development experiences and best practices with the globe through the use of India’s technical and economic cooperation platform.
Along with achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and improving technology and digital infrastructure, the project will carry out the development objectives set forward during India’s G20 Presidency.
This program demonstrates India’s commitment to bolstering its development relationship with the Global South and is a major step toward speeding progress toward the SDGs through South-South Cooperation.
