Inclusive Green Growth:
The Pathway to Sustainable Development
Nowadays the vast majority of our economies are still measured and managed in ways that incentivise overconsumption, damage nature and social cohesion, and drive climate change. In 2015 the global community committed to tackling these linked problems through the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement on climate change. Yet significant economic, societal and institutional changes are now needed if the commitments and climate goals are to be achieved.
As we transition to a more sustainable economy, we must find a coherent way to get to grips with the complexity of this transition. We need to ensure not only that we make a green transition but that it must be a just transition, promoting greater equality, more supportive labour rights, and more resilient economies – an Inclusive Green Economy.
