With the G20 Presidency this year, India has listed out an accelerated and inclusive path towards its progress on achieving Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs), particularly health and education, as the key priorities for the upcoming G20 Summit. Invoking the G20 Presidency theme of ‘One Earth One Family One Future’ the second Sherpa meet scheduled to be held in Kumarakom, Kerala from today (30th March) to 2nd April 2023 will deliberate India’s experience and leadership in building an inclusive and effective implementation of DPIs that are crucial to accelerating the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, including financial inclusion, and equitable access to education and health.
With India emerging as a global digital center, its leadership in building inclusive public technologies has not only empowered the nation but also opened a plethora of related businesses and opportunities. The DPI system has become a critical foundation for enabling the meaningful delivery of public and private services and underpinning the achievement of a range of SDGs, including, financial inclusion, economic empowerment, and climate resilience.
Demonstrating the power of India’s Digital Public Infrastructure, nasscom along with the industry will be creating an immersive Digital India Experience zone that will highlight various DPIs built by India such as CoWIN, UPI, DigiLocker and DIKSHA and its impact on the last mile, today. Providing an immersive experience to the Sherpa’s of the G20 member countries and other dignitaries, the experience zones will not only showcase India’s success story in developing a new approach to solving societal and service delivery problems using DPI, while encouraging access to innovation but will also help in creating a cohesive framework, sharing best practices, experiences, and challenges to build similar DPI in G20 members and in Low- and Middle-Income Countries.
