This project will develop a paper aiming to conceptualise the development agenda at the G20 from an African perspective. The paper aims to influence the G-20 Working Group on Development and the debate on how the G-20 incorporates development around the Seoul Summit.
The proposed paper will be structured around the following key concepts:
What are the key determinants of growth, especially of pro poor equitable sustainable growth?
Development at the G20 and African growth initiatives so far
Possible links between the G20 policies and African growth and development
Three case studies on G20 engagement in Africa
Regional Economic Integration – G-20 involvement in supporting hard and soft infrastructure development
G-20 FDI in Africa
Special Economic Zones - can they work for pro-poor development?
The paper will also include recommendations on how G-20 policies could have positive impacts on African growth and poverty reduction.
