Dear Editors and Journalists

The annual G20 Leaders Summit will take place under the Italian presidency in Rome from Saturday 30 October until Sunday 31 October 20201.  Of equal global significance is the 26th UN Conference of the Parties (COP26), which will kick off on 31 October.  

Decisions taken at both of these high-level events will have a significant impact on African countries, as they endeavour to ‘build back better’ in the wake of widespread economic devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

SAIIA has produced a range of climate change related research in the lead up to the climate talks and will be represented at COP26 by three youth delegates.

Similarly, SAIIA’s work on the G20 positions the organisation as a go-to resource for journalists seeking comment and expertise ahead of and during the summit.
