CGP member institutes convene at Global Solutions Summit
Over 30 participants from the Council for Global Problem-solving (CGP) member institutes, as well as potential CGP-member representatives from Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Spain, joined in workshops and meetings at the Global Solutions Summit last month.
Together these members from international think tanks discussed policy recommendations for the Think20 Summit in Tokyo, Japan this May, preparations for T20 Saudi Arabia in 2020 and ways to strengthen the collaboration between the Global Solutions Initiative’s two core communities: the Multistakeholder Council (MSC) and the CGP.
Updates from Workshops
Global Solutions Initiative President Dennis J. Snower shared new and upcoming research projects, including the organization of a joint conference with the OECD.
Several CGP members also gave short presentations including T20 Sherpa Naoyuki Yoshino, Gateway House’s Akshay Mathur, Bertelsmann’s Christian Kastrop, the Munk School’s John Kirton, Mercator’s Ottmar Edenhofer and ADBI’s Peter Morgan.
These presentations addressed T20 recommendations and Policy Briefs from across the various Task Force groups, in addition to providing best practice examples.
Future G20 Topics
In preparation for 2020, a large meeting was held with the G20 Saudi Arabia secretariat to discuss T20/G20 processes. Discussions also covered future topics of the G20, the CGP’s concrete project proposals and future steps.
CGP member institutes will connect again at the Global Solutions Summit on April 20-21, 2020 in Berlin, Germany.
