G20 at the time of Covid-19: What's at stake in 2021

Multilateral cooperation was being put to the test by growing divisions and confrontation well before the Covid-19 crisis. With the pandemic taking a heavy toll on human life, triggering a deep world recession and accelerating global trends, redoubling multilateral efforts is even more crucial today, in many fields: from global health to climate change, from SDGs to digital transformation. The G20 is the most important multilateral forum and its action needs to be given new life to provide effective responses.

In particular, key questions emerge in view of the Italian Presidency of the G20 in 2021: which multilateral responses are needed in a post Covid-19 world? Is the G20 format still fit to provide effective responses? How to further strengthen its action? Which priorities and tools are key to a successful Italian Presidency?
