Outcomes and key messages
The OECD held its 2018 Green Growth and Sustainable Development Forum on the theme “Inclusive solutions for the green transition: Competitiveness, jobs and social dimensions“, in conjunction with the Annual Conference of the Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP).
The Forum aimed at creating a new narrative around green growth and national competitiveness, examining examples of successful “transition management strategies” that offer inclusive solutions for green growth. It consisted of panel discussions among policy makers, business, labour and civil society representatives and academia, as well as presentations of the latest research papers.
