India-Japan Foundation (IJF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the India-Japan Global Partnership (IJGP) towards establishment of the Alternative Development Model (ADM).
IJGP was established by India Center (IC) in the year 2000. IJF, based in Tokyo, will take the legacy of IC forward.
India-Japan Foundation envisions a stronger partnership between India & Japan along with their global partners towards the establishment of the ADM framework.
There is a need for an Alternative Model of Development – a consolidated, coherent comprehensive framework that amalgamates the wisdom & experience of the Old Model and experiential innovation of the New Model.
ADM prescribes inclusive and integrated development operating system, which addresses the crises the world is facing today like dwindling natural resources, environment degradation and economic segregation. The pragmatic approach of ADM is -framing an Ideology, shaping Systems to act as a foundation, & executing Outcomes based on these systems and ideologies.
IJF will work towards the catalyzation of the following ADM-based initiatives:
The Global Partnership Summit evolved from the India Japan Global Partnership (IJGPS) initiative and is perceived as a manifestation platform to integrate ideologies, ideas, initiatives, projects, processes, people and policies together. GPS 2020 is proposed to be held in Norway.
African continent representing 1/6th of Humanity is another socio-economic lab for Alternative Development Model. The partnership's aim is to replicate and achieve similar success in Africa as it achieved in India though its ADM based initiatives
Norway could be the nucleus of the Alternative Development Model (ADM) we are proposing for our region. Emulating and inspired by the Nordic sensibility towards development could be the solution that can summarily change our world for the better.
