A new report from the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), and the Green Economy Coalition (GEC), "Pro-poor, Inclusive Green Growth: Experience and a New Agenda", explores the explicit linkages between a pro-poor and inclusive approach in driving green growth.

The GGKP, together with the report authors, is hosting a webinar on 8 June 2016 from 10:00-11:30am (Geneva time/UTC+2) highlighting key conclusions and policy recommendations from the report, namely outcomes needed to achieve an inclusive green growth transformation: i) integrated governance; ii) empowerment of marginalised groups; iii) accessible finance; and iv) metrics.

Background reading: Pro-poor, Inclusive Green Growth: Experience and a New Agenda

The report argues that inclusive green growth offers a route out of multiple related crises - in the economy, the environment and society. Yet for green growth to really fulfil its promise, it needs to be truly inclusive - tackling issues such as poverty, inequality and the exclusions that constrain both growth and environmental sustainability. Without this broader support, stand-alone green growth projects and investments will not lead to real transformation.
