The G20 is a forum of the 20 most politically and economically powerful countries of the world. The network of leading research institutes and think tanks from the G20 countries are represented in a forum of think tanks called Think20 (T20) which provides research-based policy advice to the G20 Leadership, facilitates interaction among G20 members and the policy community, and communicates issues of global importance to the relevant stakeholders.
As Member of Task Force on “Aging Population and its Economic Impact + Immigration”. IPAG wrote a Policy Brief on “Role of Innovative Policies in Incentivizing Women’s Labor Force Participation – A Response to Trends in Aging Population” for the G20 Leadership Summit held on June 28-29, 2019 in Osaka, Japan. The Policy Brief outlines the ways that increasing formal Female Labor Force Participation (FLFP) can be effective to offset the labor loss due to aging population. Among others, it suggests ways in which the G20 platform and its engagement groups can generate momentum towards increasing average formal FLFP by advocating for required policy changes.
