Annex A: Global Agenda Councils, Young Global Leaders Taskforces

This Annex contains a list of the councils and task forces that were listed in Everybody’s Business as having contributed to the Global Resign Initiative.   For each group of task forces, the GRI commissioned an over-arching essay. The individual task forces are listed with their associated GRI essays.   Subsequently WEF has created additional taskforces and Global Agenda Councils which are listed on their website. 

In some cases, it has been possible to track the progress of the Global Agenda Council followup  since the publication of the GRI. The Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI), the Global Agenda Council on Water Security (including the Youth Global Leaders task forces that have participated with them), The Global Agenda Council on the Gender Gap, and the Low-Carbon Prosperity task forces all presented the new findings following the release of the GRI. For most of the other groups, however, a search in January 2012 did not reveal any new post-GRI programs or publications from these taskforces.  

For the most up-to-date information of GRI related- activities for their councils and taskforces, see the World Economic Forum’s Network of Global Agenda Councils website and the 2012 activities report for all WEF Global Agenda Councils.
