India has contributed an additional million dollars to a UN partnership fund launched to support sustainable development projects across the developing world.
India yesterday made one million dollars to the fund. India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Ambassador Syed Akbaruddin said, India’s approach to cooperation can be summarised as Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, or the whole word is one family.
The India-UN Development Partnership Fund was set up last month as a partnership between India and the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation (UNOSSC).
India had made an initial contribution of a million dollars when the fund was created and the amount was allocated for the implementation of a project benefiting seven Small Island Developing States in the South Pacific.
