BelonggAI: Embedding Equity in SDG Research, Program Design, and Funding

Nirat Bhatnagar of the Belongg Community Ventures Private Ltd. in India, in collaboration with colleagues at ARTPARK also in India, will develop a Large Language Model (LLM)-based tool to enable development practitioners, funders, and researchers to adopt more equitable approaches, particularly addressing the intersections of marginalization. They will assemble a comprehensive and trusted corpus of development research papers, reports, and media articles and use it to build a user-friendly website and a backend ChatGPT 4.0 API-based LLM model. Users will be able to upload their draft research or program proposals and receive tailored recommendations on how to increase inclusivity across dimensions such as gender, disability, caste, religion, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. The tool will also connect users with researchers and experts with experience living with marginalized identities.
