Moderater: Oliver Greenfield, Convenor, Green Economy Coalition

Presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion with the audience.
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.
