Concept: India has taken over the G20 presidency at a very challenging time in the international order, best with multiple crises of food and energy security, climate change and declining trust in multilateralism. The world is increasingly looking at India as a problem-solver and agenda-setter. There is also a greater realisation that the greatest challenges we face can be only solved by acting together. Against this backdrop, India has a unique opportunity to shape a truly inclusive world order which is more representative and reflective of aspirations of developing countries. In this regard, reforming the global governance architecture holds the key to shaping an inclusive world order which will benefit the entire world in the spirit of “Vasushaiva Kutumbakam,” the philosophy of One Earth One Family One Future that animates India’s G20 presidency. The conference is expected to culminate in concrete proposals for facilitating reformed multilateralism and enhancing global collaboration across crucial areas ranging from accelerating Sustainable Development Goals and green transition to food and energy security. 

The panel discussion will be attended by eminent diplomats, civil servants, strategic experts, business people, development professionals, journalists and students.
