What is Sagarmatha Sambaad?

    Sagarmatha Sambaad is an initiative of the government of Nepal to host a biennial global dialogue on the most prominent issues of global, regional, and national significance. The dialogue forum was launched by the government of Nepal on 15 April 2019.

    Sagarmatha Sambaad is named after the world’s tallest peak – Sagarmatha (Mt. Everest) which is also the symbol of friendship and is meant to promote the notions of common good and collective well-being of humanity. The Sambaad believes that the most challenging issues facing global humanity can be addressed through discourses and reflections. Hence, its motto is “Knowledge is generated through discourses.”

    Sagarmatha Sambaad intends to prove itself as a vibrant dialogue platform that could contribute towards global efforts in promoting collective well-being. The forum’s resolve is to make the platform a welcoming ground for all stakeholders for impartial, transparent, open discussion and a free flow of ideas and thoughts.

    Every two years, the Sambaad draws in Kathmandu global leaders involving heads of state/government, parliamentarians, policymakers, local governments as well as representatives from inter-governmental organizations, the private sector, civil society, think tanks, academia, women, youth, and media to discuss on the ways of cooperation, exchange of ideas and sharing of experiences on vital global issues.
