A special resource, the G-20 and Africa Monitor, assesses how well G-20 decision-makers have served African interests since the grouping was first established. A new update has just been released, summarising the key outcomes of the 2013 St Petersburg Summit, and the impact for Africa.
Currently, South Africa is the only African country that is a member of the G-20. The limited number of assured African participants in the G-20 increases the risk of the G-20 paying insufficient attention to issues of concern to Africa or to the potential adverse impacts of their decisions and actions on Africa.
The G-20 and Africa Monitor is a unique resource from the Global Economic Governance Africa (GEG-Africa) project, managed by SAIIA and the University of Pretoria, allows the user to analyse how well the G-20 has performed, with analysis available for all G-20 summits thus far.
