Session 3: Making green sources of growth more inclusive

 

Session 3: Making green sources of growth more inclusive
 
The OECD Green Growth Strategy focuses on policy options for making a cleaner low-carbon economy compatible with growth by looking at ways to spur eco-innovation and by addressing other key issues related to a transition to a greener economy such as jobs and skills, investment, taxation, trade and development. What are the policy levers linking environment, technology and growth to facilitate the transition to a greener economy, and what are the differing priorities for developed and developing countries? What are the implications of the green growth agenda for more inclusive growth, and what is the need for complementary policies to help achieve more inclusive growth?
