Sherpa and Finance Tracks: how G20 topics are discussed

The G20 works differently from traditional international organizations, and is structured into two parallel tracks of activity which communicate with each other: the Sherpa Track and the Finance Track. During the Brazilian presidency, the two paths have been working together—in an unprecedented way—since the beginning of the G20 meetings.

Both tracks include thematic working groups (WGs) that meet regularly. The WGs are made up of member country government representatives, as well as from invited countries and international organizations.
