Message from the Chair, C20 India 2023
Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi ❤️
The Digital Transformation for an interconnected world should be inclusive and accessible, based on the primacy of human agency and capabilities, reduce the digital divide and inequality, consider child protection, and provide access to support for disabilities. An inclusive Digital architecture based on open and interoperable principles, and the creation of Digital Commons can redefine digital boundaries and scale globally. Digital Transformation can promote and preserve culture, provide livelihood opportunities, and address disability, health, eGovernance, and services.
The policy recommendations in Digital Transformation will consider global challenges, best practices, funding, and gender implications, and measure the translation to policy change and outcomes at the Global and country level. Building on the preparatory work. It will specifically be organised in the following areas and specific recommendations:
Promote inclusive human centred digital design and a “ Value-Principals-Action” design approach for digital technology
Promote digital public goods for the SDGs and their open distribution platforms (such as exemplified by DIKSHA https://diksha.gov.in/)
Promote value and compassion-based multi-stakeholder perspectives in the public policy space and the ethical regulation and governance of digital technology.
Raise the CSO and faith-based voices in the digital governance space and feed into leading consultation processes and upcoming G20 and C20 policy work
Contribute to building quality assurance and interoperable standards
Enhance access by the most vulnerable and promote digital literacy and hygiene
Strengthen digital accessibility for disability
These recommendations will be further developed and operationalized over the coming weeks through further research and consultations, and with the support of our advisory group.
