With a people-centred vision, the Argentine G20 Presidency placed sustainable development at the forefront of the G20 agenda in 2018, under the theme “Building consensus for fair and sustainable development”. We need to do more in the three dimensions of sustainable development (economic, social and environmental) to ensure that prosperity is shared, economic growth is inclusive, the environment is protected, peace is sustained and promoted and no one is left behind. Sustainable development also requires international cooperation, policy coordination and building consensus in the long run.
Through its work on collective and concrete actions, the G20 aims at advancing these objectives, in partnership with developed and developing countries, engagement groups, the private sector and international organisations and other stakeholders in line with the universal character of the 2030 Agenda. With a people-centred approach and by focusing on reducing poverty and inequality as well as promoting greater and shared prosperity, the Argentine G20 Presidency decided to focus on three key priorities:The future of work, Infrastructure for development, and A sustainable food future.
