Despite advancements in global governance, sustainability and context- responsiveness have largely eluded security outcomes, particularly in the Global South.

At least six factors hamstring effective coordination and cooperation vis-à-vis Sustainable Development Goal 16, which impede context- responsive outcomes and the prospects of the United Nations’ New Agenda for Peace.

Therefore, this policy brief calls on the G20 to incubate agile new mechanisms rooted in the Global South to supplement extant global security governance processes and architectures to make them “fit-for- purpose”.1 The brief concludes with a six-point ‘action plan’, including piloting a ‘No Money for Terror’ secretariat in India.
