Council for Global Problem-Solving

The Council for Global Problem-Solving (CGP) is the intellectual core of the Global Solutions Initiative. Its members are world-class think tanks and research institutions committed to providing policy advice to the G20 and associated international organizations.

The CGP is an accessible, permeable organization, open to all think tanks and research institutions that fulfill its terms of membership. The CGP works outside the official processes of the G20 and related international fora, but it supports these efforts by providing information, analysis of policy proposals and monitoring progress on policy implementation.

CGP members are engaged in a wide range of activities to offer policy advice to the G20. A selected overview can be found here.
