Rethinking Bretton Woods | Thu, Jun 14, 2012
The Group of 20 (G20) has tasked itself with coordinating a much-needed global response to tackling some of the most pressing problems of the world economy. But it is difficult to assess
the progress of the G20 countries towards the shared goals that emerged and consequently of the usefulness of the forum.
It is high time that the G20 reported on its progress against its own objectives and made other improvements to its ways of working to make it fit for purpose and more likely to achieve its
ambitious, but important goals.
In a brief with recommendations prepared in the occasion of the upcoming G20 Los Cabos Summit (to be held June 18-19), CIDSE, the transtatlantic alliance of catholic development agencies, draws attention to the need for increased progress against G20 objectives in critical areas, makes recommendations for specific actions and points to the need for better tools and processes for the G20 to increase its transparency, accountability and ultimately effectiveness.
