It ispublic knowledge that the Argentine Republic will have the presidency of theG20 during the year 2018, serving as a bridge between Germany and Japan. TheG20 is the group of the 20 largest economies in the world, accounting for 85%of the Global Gross Product, 80% of international trade and ⅔ of the world’spopulation. 

In itself,this group makes important decisions about the world economy and internationalfinance. It emerged in 1999 as a response to major crises such as Tequila(1994), Asia (1997), Vodka (1998). Until 2012, it had a very focused agenda onthe international monetary system but it has now been extended to issues suchas employment, food security and the climate crisis. 

During this COP23 there was no lack of opportunity, during the various sideevents that have been organized and that have had Argentinian speakers, to askabout the country’s position in relation to this. From the variouspresentations of the Argentine delegation, it can be pointed out that althoughthe agenda is still in construction, three thematic points could behighlighted: 

1. Adaptation: focusing onimpacts and vulnerabilities and the construction of resilient infrastructure. 
2. Employment: in terms of itsgrowth due to the exploration and opening of new markets, as well as itspotential decrease due to losses and damages caused by climate change. 
3. Education: as a transversalpolicy to all the agenda.  

Theseaspects have been strategically chosen to address issues related tovulnerability and social debt that exists in the Latin American region, whichis one of the most affected by climate change.  

Inrelation to this and in the representation of President Mauricio Macri, theMinister of Environment and Sustainable Development of Argentina, SergioBergman, mentioned today in the Joint High Level Segment, that "thediscussions are technical but the debate is ethical, we are speaking aboutsomething can not be discussed in terms of the market, it has no price, it hasan inestimable value, which is the life and dignity of all human beings".  

Beyond thestatement that results from the G20, this presidency is focused on continuingto address the low emission policy, and then analyze when, how and at what costwill be carried forward. 

Although Argentina has made it clear that it does not share the position of thepresident of the United States and that it is not willing to renegotiate theParis Agreement, it takes the challenge in G20 presidency to address andconceptualize a work agenda that manages to address the climate crisis keepingall countries on board.
