Traditionally, environmental considerations were limited to "safeguards" or "do-not-harm" concerns and were generally confined to environmental specialists. Recently, climate change concerns and the fuel, food and financial crises, have started to shift attention from precaution towards a new paradigm characterized by recognition that environment and growth have to work hand in hand and can actually be mutually reinforcing goals.
Objetivos del Evento
The general objective of the course is to draw participants' attention to this shift in paradigm, and provide them with an understanding of the opportunities brought about by the transformation towards an inclusive green economy, and their role in promoting and supporting partner countries to engage in this is transformation as a path to pursue sustainable development and poverty reduction.
Objetivos de Aprendizaje
At the end of the seminar, participants will be able to: • Explain how natural capital and environmental considerations can provide real opportunities for economic development leading to poverty reduction; • Provide examples of policy options and instruments relevant to the promotion of inclusive green economy at the micro, meso, and macro levels and describe interlinkages between the different levels; • Identify opportunities, main challenges and constraints linked to the transformation towards an inclusive green economy particularly in developing countries; • Analyze the relevance of the green economy concept for the development cooperation field and how it translates into programme planning; and • Outline current inclusive green economy and green growth initiatives and identify potential synergies.
