India Launches $25 Million Fund and Global Repository to Spur Digital Public Infrastructure Implementation

By Chris Burt

India has launched a social impact fund with a $25 million commitment to support the development of digital public infrastructure in the Global South, along with a Global DPI Repository (GDPIR) to share resources.

The announcement credits the G20 Digital Economy Working Group (DEWG) with leading the global push to support DPIs. That push also includes the UNDP’s 50-in-5 campaign, and the UNDP and India jointly released a pair of resources in August to speed DPI development in furtherance of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
