Group of 7 Development policy outcomes of Germany’s G7 Presidency

Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine, dangerous food shortages and rising food prices in many parts of the world, the impacts of the COVID‐19 pandemic or successive heatwaves and droughts – the global community is facing a wide range of complex challenges, which can be resolved only in collaboration with developing countries and emerging economies.

Guided by this notion, Germany’s G7 Presidency can point to some important development policy outcomes following the meeting of the G7 development ministers and the G7 summit of heads of state and government. There is complete agreement between Germany and its partners that more rapid progress is needed if we are to meet the Sustainable Development Goals set out in the 2030 Agenda.
