Global Solutions Initiative
The Global Solutions Initiative provides a new, permanent, supportive advisory structure to G20 and G7. Independent of the official processes, yet firmly connected with official engagement groups and working groups, the initiative delivers independent, long-term oriented policy briefs for world leaders.
The Global Solutions Initiative was established during the German G20 Presidency. It brings together leading think tanks and stakeholders to provide policy solutions to the most relevant global institutions (e.g. G20, G7, OECD, UN, World Bank and WTO).
At the heart of this initiative is the Council for Global Problem-Solving - a network of world-class think tanks with excellent contacts to policy-makers in their respective countries (G7/G20) and a set of think tanks in virtually every country worldwide. The Multi-Stakeholder Council, involving decision-makers from business, politics, and civil society, provides a crucial bridge between the policy proposals and their implementation.
The Global Solutions Initiative supports the G20 think tank agenda:
