Image: NetworkFor the first time since the establishment of the Think20 (T20) process, Think Tanks from across Africa have met with T20 Think Tanks to discuss the G20 agenda and potential opportunities for Africa-G20 cooperation.

The T20 Africa conference was organized by the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA), the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW) and was attended by 240 high-ranking delegates from African and G20 Think Tanks, African regional organisations, the South African and German governments, the European Union and the OECD, as well as other G20 engagement groups such as the Business20 (B20).

The conference provided a unique forum to discuss how Africa and the G20 could build alliances to promote sustainable development. Please read the communiqué of the conference co-hosts for further information about the outcomes and recommendations of the conference.
