India has been gaining prominence on the international stage as one of the fastest growing economies of the world and as a leader of the South-South Cooperation Framework. Through platforms such as BRICS, G20 and IBSA, India is in a position to additionally influence and shape the Post 2015 Development Agenda. In order to make its voice representative at these forums, it is imperative that the experiences and concerns of India’s voluntary sector be taken into account. At the same time, the voluntary sector in India also needs to understand the intricacies of global issues and the debates and processes that have a cascading effect on it. In this context, HBS and VANI coordinated studies on four thematic issues, namely, Inclusive Growth, Financial Inclusion, Sustainable Development and Corruption and Governance with its partner organizations. The four reports which were produced as a result of these studies are intended to also provide critical inputs to the Post-2015 Development Agenda in India.
It was felt that the reports be condensed into comprehensive albeit succinct policy briefs for wider dissemination. The policy briefs were then translated into Hindi to further engage, educate and impact small and grassroot organizations not so conversant in English.
