Is the Group of 20 (G-20) working for Africa?

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.

The full G-20 and Africa Monitor or read only the updates to the Monitor that cover the 2013 Summit.

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.
