The report is a summary of the key discussions from the policy conference organised by NITI Aayog, International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and Global Development Network (GDN) on 28th – 29th, July 2023, that focused on green and sustainable growth. A G20 side event, it brought together 40 leading thinkers to deliberate on a new growth model for G20 members. These leading experts provided insights and ideas on energy, climate, and growth; technology, policy, and jobs; the growth implications of a fractured trading system and reshaping global finance for sustainable growth in addition to themes related to multilateralism as well as adjustment, resilience, and inclusion in an uncertain world.  The report embodies the collaborative spirit of G20, tackling crises and challenges. It provides a realistic view of international development, acknowledging uneven progress and offering insights as benchmarks for researchers and stakeholders. Recommendations arising from the conference are highlighted as critical for shaping dialogue and building consensus among member states. Some of the key ideas and thoughts shared by the experts during the two-day deliberations were also incorporated in the G20 New Delhi Leaders’ Declaration.
