Introducing G20 CSAR
G20 brings together top and emerging scientific powers of the
world that produce approximately 85% of global scientific
knowledge. It is an effective platform to discuss and achieve
solutions to some of the long pending as well as the anticipated
issues related to scientific research, technology development
and deployment. The Chief Science Advisers (or their
equivalents) are embedded within the highest level of governance
and have a prominent role in shaping the policy choices by
providing evidence-driven science advice.
As part of
India’s G20 presidency, we propose to facilitate the G20 Chief
Science Advisers’ Roundtable to discuss and develop common
frameworks on select agenda.
