|| Fast, Fair and Green: How can we create an economic transition fast, fair, and green enough to achieve the SDGs and NDCs?
Business as usual isn't working. It is driving climate change, inequality, biodiversity collapse, instability and displacement, pollution and public health crises, and the depletion of natural capital on which lives depend. People are calling for change.
The inclusive green economy offers solutions. It can create tens of millions of decent jobs including for women and youth, and can contribute to food security, access to energy, clean air and water, the protection of wildlife, and the restoration of ecosystems.
Over the last decade, governments, businesses, and financial institutions have been pioneering new policies, practices, and products that aim to drive the transition to an inclusive green economy. But is this transition adequately fast, fair and green?
At the UN High-level Political Forum for Sustainable Development (HLPF 2019), a group of institutions leading the transformation to inclusive green economies are inviting global leaders for a panel discussion to ask:
-> How can we create an economic transition fast, fair, and green enough to achieve the SDGs and NDCs?
-> What are the guiding principles of an inclusive green economic transition? What are the priority actions?
-> Where can governments, businesses, and financial institutions access the knowledge, guidance, data, and tools they need to green their operations?
