TV Debate: What makes your country wealthy?

On the 9th January 2019, the Green Economy Coalition and the Green Growth Knowledge Platform hosted a televised debate on CNBC Africa, bringing leaders from business, politics and NGOs together to ask - have we been getting "wealth" wrong all these years?

The panel included:

  • Hon. Dr Mary Goretti Kitutu, Minister for the Environment, Uganda
  • Kumi Naidoo, Secretary General, Amnesty International
  • Prof. Cameron Hepburn, Director of the Smith School, Oxford University
  • Nozipho January-Bardill, Chairperson, UN Global Compact Local Network SA and Non-Executive Director, Anglogold Ashanti and Mercedes Benz SA

The event, broadcast live on the African continent's largest business media network, was anchored by CNBC's CNBC’s Ms Nozipho Mbanjwa, and featured some of the foremost thinkers on development, sustainability, economic growth and environmental protection, exploring perhaps one of the central issues of our time.
