This Policy Brief was first published in https://t20ind.org


This policy brief aims to lay out a common definition of digital public infrastructure (DPI), as understood through India’s experience, but one that must be applied and adopted across jurisdictions. The brief argues for the immense merit of building a shared vocabulary on DPI, and its use, values, and governance. It suggests that the G20 is an immensely important forum to give meaning to this approach, and institutionalise it through various means, allowing the DPI approach to flourish in different contexts while building collaborations between G20 countries and their partners.
