G20, 2017 Think 20 Dialogue

On Sunday, 28 May international think tanks in the Think 20 Group (T20) presented twenty policy proposals for the twenty largest industrialised and emerging countries (G20) to the German Chancellery to take forward to G20 decision-makers.

The 20 research-based policy recommendations were developed by over 300 scientists from reputable research organisations and think tanks. The twenty recommendations focus on the following policy areas:

  • Digitalization
  • Building a stable, sustainable, and resilient global economy
  • Climate policy and finance
  • Fighting hunger, reducing inequalities, managing forced migration

The 2030 Agenda – a universal framework for human development and shared prosperity.
Of particular relevance to the African continent was that the T20 called on G20 to strengthen its relationship with Africa by considering a full and permanent seat for the African Union Commission in the G20 and its work streams.
