The Global Economic Governance (GEG) Africa programme is a policy research and stakeholder engagement programme to strengthen the influence of pro-poor African coalitions at global economic governance fora.

G20 and Africa Monitor - Overview

Global economic governance has become more complex over the past twenty years. As new issues and actors have emerged, global economic governance directly affects a broad range of state and non-state actors, many of whom were previously only indirectly affected by these matters.

Unfortunately, most of these stakeholders are not able to effectively participate in global economic governance decision-making. Currently, South Africa is the only African country that is a member of the G-20. The limited number of assured African participants in the G-20 increases the risk of the G-20 paying insufficient attention to issues of concern to Africa or to the potential adverse impacts of their decisions and actions on Africa.

The SAIIA G-20 and Africa Monitor resources available in this section of the website assess how well G-20 decision-makers have served African interests. It allows the user to analyse how well the G-20 has performed, with analysis for all G-20 summits thus far.

Simply click here to see the full list of assessments, or use the filtering options to the right to select the topics or the summits which are of interest to you.

An explanation of the G-20, its history, and the assessments upon which this Monitor is based can be found in this SAIIA Occasional Paper [PDF - 1MB].

You can also download a Policy Briefing The G-20 and Africa: A Critical Assessment (PDF, 904.02 kB), which applies the methodology in a short Policy Brief format.
