This half day consultation on green growth and development, organised jointly by the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) and OECD, will take place 9th May on the margins of the Second Global Green Growth Summit, 10-11 May 2012 in Seoul, Korea. The event aims to kick-off a discussion on green growth and development, and will use draft chapters from the OECD Green Growth and Developing Countries report as a basis for discussion.
The discussion will be co-chaired by GGGI and OECD. Following brief opening remarks and introductions, the first session will set the scene and feature triggering remarks on green growth from high level participants. This will help conceptualise what green growth means for this audience, what experiences they have had to date, and where particular tensions, opportunities and sensitivities exist. This short discussion will be built around Chapters 1 and 2 of the Green Growth and Developing Countries Report.
This will be followed by the major substantive chapter of the report on policy frameworks and the measurement agenda for green growth. The topic will be introduced by the lead authors followed by discussion. Following a short coffee break, the lead author of the chapter on International Enabling Environment for Green Growth will present the key findings. A final session will make some tentative conclusions as to what issues need to be addressed before the completion of an interim report in time for the Rio+20 Summit. The co-chairs will wrap up each session summarising the main points covered and recommendations on how the report could be amended to take account of the suggestions of developing country participants.
