By Sachin Chaturvedi, Mustafizur Rahman, and Ravi Srinivas


Global technology regimes and international organisations have played a significant role in facilitating STI cooperation to cater to diverse needs in areas of development and sustainability. However, the existing technology transfer models are found to be inadequate to meet the needs of developing countries. In this context, this Policy Brief examines the significance of S&T and availability of innovation driven solutions, to address sustainability challenges. Additionally, the Brief highlights role that G-20 may play in promoting SDGs through supporting the best practices adopted for technology cooperation. It also puts emphasis on building technological as well as financial capacities, facilitating intellectual property regimes for fostering STI partnerships.
