OECD's Green Growth Strategy
The presentation outlined the Green Growth Strategy at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). This strategy aims to help countries foster economic growth and development while ensuring that the environment will continue to provide resources and services that are necessary for economic development and citizens’ wellbeing. This will require structural change and sound product, labour market and social policies need to be in place to ensure an efficient and equitable transition. As a concrete example, the presentation highlighted some key results from the OECD’s work on climate change.
Speakers: Nathalie Girouard, coordinator for OECD Green Growth Strategy, and Nicola Brandt, responsible for the analysis and policy advice concerning green growth issues within OECD Economic Surveys of member countries
