Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a recent article, reflects on India’s G20 presidency, asserting its transformation into a people-driven movement focused on unity, collaboration, and dismantling barriers. Under India’s leadership, the G20 has pledged to make the global table more inclusive, ensuring that every voice is heard and every nation contributes to a shared destiny of unity and collaboration.

Voice of Global South Summit: A Milestone Initiative

One of the pivotal initiatives during India’s G20 presidency has been the Voice of Global South Summit, which witnessed the participation of 125 countries. This marked a significant step towards expanding the G20’s representation and inclusivity, particularly from African nations.

Accelerating Progress on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Prime Minister Modi emphasized the interconnectedness of global challenges in an increasingly interconnected world. He expressed concern about the off-track progress on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in many countries. India’s G20 2023 action plan aims to spearhead progress on SDGs, charting a course for their effective implementation on a global scale.

Harmony with Nature: India’s Timeless Norm

Modi highlighted India’s longstanding commitment to living in harmony with nature, a tradition dating back to ancient times. He emphasized India’s modern contributions to climate action and urged a complementary pursuit, where climate ambitions align with actions on climate finance and technology transfer.

Democratizing Climate Action

India’s Prime Minister called for a shift from a purely restrictive attitude towards climate action to a more constructive approach focused on tangible efforts to combat climate change. Initiatives like the International Solar Alliance and the Global Biofuels Alliance, led by India, exemplify this commitment to green energy and sustainability.

Lifestyles for Sustainable Environment (LiFE)

Modi drew a parallel between the global wellness movement spurred by Yoga and the environmental consciousness encouraged by “Lifestyles for Sustainable Environment (LiFE).” He emphasized the role of individual choices in promoting a sustainable planet.

Promoting Millets for Food Security and Climate-Smart Agriculture

Recognizing the importance of food and nutritional security in the face of climate change, Modi advocated for the promotion of millets, or “Shree Anna,” as a solution. He highlighted how millets can bolster climate-smart agriculture and enhance food security.

Inclusive Technology for All

The Prime Minister stressed the importance of making technology inclusive, ensuring that the benefits of technological advancements reach all sections of society. India’s efforts in leveraging technology to narrow inequalities were commended.

Women-Led Development and Gender Equality

Modi lauded Indian women’s leadership across various sectors, shifting the narrative from women’s development to women-led development. India’s G20 Presidency is committed to bridging the gender digital divide, reducing labor force participation gaps, and promoting women’s leadership roles.

India’s Multifaceted G20 Presidency

India’s G20 presidency is not just a diplomatic endeavor but a representation of India’s diversity, democracy, and development. The presidency has opened its doors to the world, showcasing India’s strengths.

A People-Driven Movement

The G20 presidency under India’s leadership has become a people-driven movement, exemplified by over 200 meetings held in 60 Indian cities, hosting nearly 100,000 delegates from 125 countries. It reflects India’s ability to accomplish tasks at scale and offers a firsthand experience of its unique attributes.
