Hinduja proposal generates interest

A proposal conceptualised by Hinduja Group Chairman S P Hinduja for a public-private partnership for stock-taking government efforts to tackle the challenges of terrorism, climate change and poverty has generated huge interest among global leaders.

Hinduja Foundation US Chairperson Shanu S P Hinduja said at a high-level meeting here on Friday that that she has been approached by a number of heads of state and leaders with "positive feedback" for 'Global Challenges Day', which is the brainchild of her father.

Hinduja said given the interest in the concept, the time is right to invite and host a roundtable discussion with the UN Secretary-General, heads of state and global leaders to "develop a concept which will be led by the Global Challenges Day to support the post-2015 Global Development Agenda.

"This is a major effort that we are ready to take by 2015 (or) early 2016," Hinduja said while addressing a high-level panel on 'Services and Applications For Disadvantaged People and Communities'.

Hinduja had shared the concept of the 'Global Challenges Day' during the UN General Assembly session last year while participating in the high-level meeting on 'Disability — inclusive Development Agenda towards 2015 and beyond.'
