At the invitation of each Presidency, key international organisations participate in G20 meetings to provide substantive inputs and enrich the discussion. The OECD has acted as a strategic advisor to the G20.
The OECD participates in all G20 Working Group meetings and provides data, analytical reports and proposals on specific topics, often jointly with other relevant international organisations.
The OECD has been working closely with the IMF on national growth strategies and the structural policy agenda as part of the Framework for strong, sustainable and balanced growth, with the ILO on youth employment and gender, with the World Bank, UNDP and other international organisations on development, with the IEA on fossil fuels, and with the WTO and UNCTAD on monitoring investment and trade protectionism.
The G20 engages in multistakeholder dialogue by means of the Engagement Groups (B20, L20, C20, T20, W20, Y20, U20), with a view to promote broader inclusion and participation in their design of global solutions.
These groups address many areas of key relevance for the work of the G20 and the OECD alike, particularly topics related to business, labour, youth, gender equality and urban policies, and they involve key actors, such as the private sector, think tanks, trade unions, scientists, youth and women associations, civil society as a whole. The OECD, in the framework of its multistakeholder cooperation, contributes in different ways to the work of these groups, including by organising the annual high level OECD-B20-BIAC meeting, attending the G20 Engagement Groups events and conferences, providing data and analysis to underpin their priorities.
