In 2020 and beyond, the G20 has to reinvigorate its implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Both challenges are global in nature and require a universal, integrated, and transformative response. The G20 should (1) reorient its political agenda following the 2019 Global Sustainable Development Report’s proposal of six entry points for transformation and focus on the levers “Economy and finance” and “Science and technology”, (2) reshape its working structures accordingly, (3) act collectively on the directionality of science for sustainable development and (4) ensure that response and recovery measures on the COVID-19 crisis follow the spirit of the 2030 Agenda and are conducive to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
