At the turn of the year, Germany took over the G7 presidency setting the country’s brand-new government up to face its first test on the international stage. The presidency offers Germany the opportunity to convene the G7 to address global challenges amid a global pandemic and in a moment of major international tensions, and to build on its leadership role in global health during the last G7 and G20 presidencies. The program, presented by the government on January 21 under the title ‘Progress toward an equitable world’, suggests Germany's high ambitions in this regard. Although Chancellor Scholz has specifically highlighted climate action as a key focus, Germany’s G7 program features multiple development policy priorities within the five focus areas.
The presented program gives promising connecting factors to advance global solutions. Now it is for the German government to translate its program into concrete action and develop solutions with its G7 partners.
The G7 Leaders’ Summit will take place from June 26-28, 2022, at Schloss Elmau in the Bavarian Alps. The development ministers will hold a separate meeting from May 18-19, 2022 in Berlin. Part of the ministerial meeting will be shared with the Health Ministers to discuss the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
