The Euro-Mediterranean Economists Association (EMEA), represented by its Founder and President, Professor Rym Ayadi, co-signed a letter of Global Citizen to the G20 Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors, with recommendations to end extreme poverty now, fight climate change, and set the path for a fair and sustainable future for all.
The letter underlines that the world is facing multiple converging crises — growing food insecurity, rising fuel prices, economic instability, and the climate crisis — and they are all hitting poor countries the hardest. Representing the biggest economies, the most important donors, as well as the most important shareholders to international financial institutions, the G20 collectively has the power to solve some of the most pressing global challenges.

Τhe letter is fully inline with the proposals and philosophy of EMEA as presented in previous publications for the G20
