The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the urgency of finding common and shared solutions to many overlapping global challenges: from the health emergency to skyrocketing debt, from climate change to barriers to international trade, from digital transition to heightened poverty and inequality. The Italian Presidency of the G20 effectively summarizes these priorities for the multilateral framework in 2021 in “People, Planet, Prosperity” and these are the topics at the T20 Inception Conference held on February 8 and 9.
Amongst many others, participants include: Paolo Gentiloni – European Commissioner for Economy; Alicia Bárcena – Executive Secretary ECLAC; Jeffrey Sachs – Director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University; Emma Bonino – former European Commissioner and former Italian Minister of Foreign Affairs; Tetsushi Sonobe – Dean of the Asian Development Bank Institute; Virginia Gamba – Special Representative of the UN Secretary General for Children and Armed Conflict.
