The event discusses the priorities of the Brazilian leadership, the participation of teams of engagement and incidences from the Global South, with a sequence of presidencies of developing countries
The priorities of the Brazilian presidency of the G20, an overview of the performance and governance of the body and also participation mechanisms through engagement teams with respect to the priority themes of this new phase were the highlights of the meeting “G20: Structure and opportunities for the participation of Brazilian civil society,” organized by the Cipó Platform, with support from iCS. The nations that form this international forum, composed of the world’s largest economies, represent around 80% of the global GDP and 75% of global trade, in addition to being home to two thirds of the planet’s population.
It is the first time that the troika (previous, current and future holders of the presidency) of the G20 has been established by developing nations (Indonesia, India and Brazil), with a guaranteed permanence in 2025, when South Africa assumes the presidency. There is, therefore, an important window of opportunity for the Global South. Watch the event in full and discover what happened!
