The Centre for the Study of the Economies of Africa (CSEA) is set to participate in the Think 20 Summit 2017 – GLOBAL SOLUTIONS scheduled to hold in Berlin, Germany on 29th -30th May 2017. The Think20 (T20) is a network of research institutes and think tanks from the G20 countries. The T20 is mandated by the German G20 Presidency to provide 20 Global Solutions for the G20 on its focal topics such as: digital economy, climate policy and finance, migration and refugees. 

This year, the T20 summit will provide a platform for leading international decision-makers from think tanks, academia, business, politics, international organizations and civil society to discuss and develop new solutions to major global problems within the thematic areas. It will also provide an opportunity for carefully selected Young Global Changers (YGC) who are passionate about changing the state of the world for the better to contribute to the discussions and share ideas and thoughts that will help address these global issues.

A Research Associate at CSEA, Miss Precious Chukwuemelie Akanonu, will join other Young Global Changers from around the world to share their views and ideas towards global problem-solving. Miss Akanonu has received the YGC scholarship to attend the summit and discuss her project on Climate Policy and Finance.
