The Group of Twenty (G20)
The Group of Twenty (G20) is an international organization that brings together the world's 20 largest economies. The G20 promotes international economic cooperation and policy coordination among its members to support global economic growth and stability. Its members include 19 individual countries and the European Union, representing around 80% of global economic output and two-thirds of the world's population.
The G20 has significantly responded to significant global challenges, such as the 2008 financial crisis. During the financial crisis, the G20 was critical in coordinating policy responses and preventing a global economic meltdown. The group's leaders also committed to several reforms to strengthen the global financial system and prevent future crises.
In addition to its work on economic and financial issues, the G20 has also discussed and coordinated a range of other global challenges, such as climate change, energy, and food security. The group has played a significant role in advancing global climate action, including through the Paris Agreement on climate change.
