Welcome to the C20 Climate & Sustainability group
This group developed recommendations for the G20 to support long-term growth through the sustainable use of natural resources. A strong, sustainable global economy depends on a healthy environment, making the related challenges of climate change, climate finance and resource security a critical focus for the G20. As economic growth brings with it rising consumption of resources, the impact on climate and fragile eco-systems becomes increasingly evident and the solutions to address environmental degradation increasingly urgent.
Membership of this working group is open. Anyone can have input into the group’s recommendations, but only by posting on this website. Drafting of the group’s position paper was led by the discussion leaders and co-chairs. A draft position paper was posted online here on 29 April for further feedback.
The feedback we receive will help shape our final recommendations to the G20 Leaders.
The discussions here closed on 16 May. All policy position papers will inform the Australian C20’s communique which will be discussed and approved at the Summit in June.
