Who We Are

The Global Solutions Initiative is a global collaborative enterprise that proposes policy responses to major global problems, addressed by the G20, the G7 and other global governance fora. The policy recommendations and strategic visions are generated through a disciplined research program by leading research organizations, elaborated in policy dialogues between researchers, policymakers, business leaders and civil society representatives.

The Global Solutions Initiative was founded during the 2017 German G20 Presidency. Since then, the Global Solutions Initiative supports the Think20 process for think tanks. Read more about the Global Solutions Initiative’s Vision & Mission.
