Antalya, Turkey -- The 2015 G20 leaders' summit, which has just concluded here in Antalya, Turkey, has made welcome progress in tackling the refugee crisis and taken some tentative steps towards the widening gap between rich and poor. However, the G20 has done little to build momentum toward an ambitious climate deal.

The 2014 G20 summit: What did it achieve?

Brisbane – Walking around Brisbane today after the G20 Leaders’ Summit, there is little physical evidence that the meeting ever took place.  The security barriers have gone, the banners taken down, and everyone is back at work after enjoying an extra public holiday.  But what about the decisions taken by the G20 leaders last weekend?  Will their impacts be just as transitory?

G20 must turn the tide on rising inequality and tackle the Ebola crisis

Brisbane -- G20 Leaders who met in Brisbane, Australia on the 15 and 16 of November need to focus on the real issues that matter for the world. This means they need to tackle rising inequality head-on or risk leaving millions of people trapped in poverty. They also need to ensure they are all doing their fair share to tackle the Ebola crisis.

The G20 brings together the world's major advanced and emerging economies, represents 90 per cent of global GDP, 80 per cent of global trade and two-thirds of the world's population. It's a powerful group, and its efforts to boost growth and fix the global tax system are important and needed.

Managing the message: Brisbane G20 host stumbles

Photo: pmwebphotos/flickr

When the G20 meetings in Brisbane, Australia broke up last weekend, the usual "time to manage the news" approach of the host government ran into some serious difficulties.

Supremely unpopular at home, instead of massaging international public opinion in the hopes of improving his domestic image, the Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott seemed intent on gaining ground in the world's unloved leader sweepstakes.
