Green industrial policies for transformative change

February 22, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:45 pm

The CIES is delighted to partner with the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) at the occasion of the launch of its three publications on green industrial policy: “Green Industrial Policy and Trade: A Toolbox”“Practitioner’s Guide to Strategic Green Industrial Policy”, and “Green Industrial Policy: Concept, Policies, Country Experiences”. In light of the urgency to shift the economy to a sustainable pathway, green industrial policies are proposed as a way to accelerate transformative change. During a panel discussion, speakers will discuss the potential of green industrial policy to support an inclusive green economy transition, drawing on the insights from the three publications developed by PAGE and country-level policy experience. Speakers:
  • Tilman Altenburg, Head of the Department of Sustainable Economic and Social Development, German Development Institute (DIE) and co-editor of “Green Industrial Policy: Concept, Policies, Country Experiences”
  • UNIDO representative (TBC)
  • Jorge E. Viñuales, Professor for Law and Environmental Policy, University of Cambridge, and lead author of “Green Industrial Policy and Trade: A Toolbox”
  • Her Excellency Ms. Nozipho Joyce Mxakato-Diseko, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, Permanent Mission of South Africa to the United Nations Office at Geneva
