This year's Green Growth and Sustainable Development Forum (GGSD Forum) focuses on the theme “Urban green growth, spatial planning and land-use”. Land use and spatial planning policies have implications for both the environment and the economy. Overall, consideration will be given to the potential for regional, rural and urban policy to contribute to green growth.
Le Forum est un lieu qui rassemble des experts des pays membres et des économies non membres afin de partager leurs expériences et d'explorer les questions de politique commune en se concentrant principalement sur la dimension environnementale du développement durable et de ses liens avec les politiques économiques et sociales.
