The T20 has established itself as a global forum for reviewing evidence-based policies and proposals while helping refine and promote the G20’s shared objectives and priorities by weaving a coherent, multilateral narrative that is based on international cooperation and understanding. For the T20 to be successful, it should be built on a foundation of transparency and accountability. If the T20 is truly to be an effective global forum it should be clear about its objectives and more transparent about its processes and members and accountable for its recommendations and commitments.

This document collects the ideas and proposals of the Co-Chairs of Task Force 11 “Reforming the T20”, as well as other experts and colleagues who provided further inputs to reform and enhance the T20 process. It is divided into three Pillars (Governance & Financing; Diversity, Inclusion, Regional Context; Quality, Timing & Impact) advancing reform proposals on key challenges of the T20 process.
