The G20 Summit (summit on financial markets and the world economy) will be held in Japan in June 2019. In conjunction with the G20, the Think 20 (T20) summit will also be held in Japan.
Among ten issue-specific task forces launched for T20 Japan, the JICA Research Institute (JICA-RI) will coordinate the following:
- Task force 1: “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (Sustainable Development Goals: SDGs),” and
- Task force 5: “Cooperation with Africa” in collaboration with the African Development Bank.
The task forces involve think tanks and researchers from around the world and will make policy briefs, which will be incorporated into the T20 Communiqué for the G20.
