Under the guiding philosophy for India’s Presidency of G20, Vasudhaiva Kutumbkam i.e. “One Earth, One Family, and One Future”, the Comptroller and Auditor General of India had proposed the collaboration of SAI20 Engagement Group on two priority areas — Blue Economy and Responsible Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Blue Economy is the Sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods, and jobs while preserving the health of our ecosystem. With AI making more significant inroads into governance, SAIs must inevitably prepare themselves for auditing AI-based governance systems. Simultaneously SAIs must look for opportunities to adopt AI into their audit techniques to increase their effectiveness.

In line with this, during the SAI20 Summit, SAI India shall present and introduce the Compendiums on Blue Economy and Responsible AI which has contributions and experience sharing by the SAI20 members and other SAIs to guide future audits on these priority areas. There shall further be sharing of knowledge and experiences by the eminent panellists during the insights on Blue Economy and Responsible AI. Importantly, consensus will be derived on the role and responsibilities of SAI20 Engagement Group, in the times to come, in fostering accountability in governance and strategically partnering with the governments to respond to global challenges.
