The Global South Impact Community (GSIC)

Elevating the voice of the Global South

Rallying together to advance transformative action

The Global South Impact Community (GSIC) is a group of impact leaders, predominantly from the Global South, who gathered at The Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center in July 2022 to generate new ways of thinking about development in the Global South in a post-pandemic world. Representing public, private, and philanthropic sectors from 16 countries across five continents, this group is committed to taking action on the recommendations from their statement to the G20 and plans to amplify this urgent agenda at global convenings.
