  • Top 5 Most Viewed Webpages

*Only News, Events and Special Pages that were launched or updated are included in the timescale for this category.

The G7/G20 Summit Special Feature 2022 ranked at the top of the list. The page was designed to answer questions such as “What is the G7?” and “What is the G20?” giving a basic explanation and brief comments by IGES researchers in a compact format. The G7/G20 Summit Special Feature 2021 did not rank in the top ten last year, so the enhanced content in 2022 seems to have made a difference to the results.
