GoI to launch Millet International Initiative for Research and Awareness.

  • The objectives of the initiative are to coordinate the millet research program, involve different countries and increase their skill set, increase millet consumption worldwide, and invest in millet research.
  • Every G20 member has to pay a membership fee to join the initiative, which will be used to implement the initiative in different parts of the world.
  • India's goal is to become a "Global Hub for Millets," and the country produces one-fifth of the world's millets, with jowar being the most common and popular millet.
  • Millets require less water to grow than rice and wheat, making them more environmentally friendly. As the world moves towards a healthier diet, India has good opportunities to capture the global trade of millet, and this initiative will help achieve this.
