Global Women Media – Women 20 Communiqué 2020

Recommendations on achieving sustainable development

In 2020, the Women 20 (W20) celebrates its fifth anniversary. The new W20 Summit took place at the moment when the world is moving to a new phase of its existence. Today, humanity faces many challenges related to technological revolutions, economic uncertainty, social unrest, and rapidly unfolding global crises that have been caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The W20 participants outlined the possible solutions to these challenges in their new communiqué.

The Group of Twenty (G20) is the organisation, based on which the W20 substructure was created. Taking into consideration the current circumstances, G20 leaders see their responsibility in following the path of the economic recovery of the world. They are convinced that women acting as equal partners and key economic actors are an important element in the chain of solutions to pressing problems. 

Inclusiveness and diversity enrich decision making that is critical for effective policies and business practices required to tackle the crisis and its offshoots sustainably.
