Transatlantic faith-based network addresses demands to G20 leaders (September 2009)

Rethinking Bretton Woods | Wed, Sep 23, 2009

A letter sent by International Cooperation for Development and Solidarity Network (CIDSE), a transatlantic network of faith-based development agencies of which Center of Concern is a member, addresses demands to the US and European country members of the G20 meeting in Pittsburgh.  

The Group of 20 should take responsibility for the rapid implementation of the set of actions agreed upon by the world community at the conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis and Its Impact on Development, held last June.

This is the primary demand in a letter sent today by International Cooperation for Development and Solidarity Network (CIDSE), a transatlantic network of faith-based development agencies of which Center of Concern is a member. The letter is addressed to leaders of the US and European country members of the G20 (including the Swedish Presidency of the European Union, which will hold the European Union seat in the G20) and calls for a number of measures in view of the upcoming G20 Summit in Pittsburgh.
