G20 Policy Research Group & T20

In December 2016, Germany will take over the presidency of the G20 from China. Then, the lead of the group of major developed and emerging economies will be in the hands of a country, which – according to its government – intends to adopt a special responsibility for the success of the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement. As these goals can only be achieved in a common effort, the activities of the G20 within the year of the German presidency will decisively influence future global development. The way towards global economic recovery that the G20 intends to accomplish will have to be shaped along these lines. The global development and climate goals also imply a chance for the G20, to evolve from a forum of pure crisis management to an initiator of global societal change.

The “G20 Policy Research Group”, based at the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) accompanies the G20 process from the perspective of global development, through research, policy advice, and education. Furthermore, DIE takes an active role in the engagement of the T20, a group of think tanks from G20 countries, and coordinates their activities jointly with the Kiel Institute for the World Economy during the course of the German G20 presidency. The T20 network brings together researchers from different countries and develops concrete policy proposals.

In this web special, we inform you about the activities of the G20 Policy Research Group and those of the T20 during the German G20 presidency
