Global Green Growth Week 2016 (GGGW2016), which will meet under the theme ‘Maximizing Impact for Inclusive and Sustainable Green Growth’, will be taking place on September 5-9, 2016 at the International Conventional Centre Jeju City, Jeju Island, Republic of Korea. The event is meant to provide a platform to generate innovative solutions, leverage green growth opportunities and promote the delivery of pro-poor, inclusive, and environmentally sustainable growth.
The event, which is being organized by the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), will address four thematic priorities for inclusive, sustainable green growth: energy, water, land use and green cities. The event will bring together representatives from government, multilateral development banks (MDBs), international development agencies, the private sector, academia and non-governmental organizations. Participants will look at green growth policy, research, partnerships, financing and technology through policy dialogues, panel discussions, capacity-building workshops, country-focused briefings and technology exhibits.
GGGW2016 will include the Global Green Growth Summit, the fourth Annual Conference of the Green Growth Knowledge Platform and the Asian Regional Policy Dialogue. The event is also expected to feature the Inclusive Green Growth Partnership, the launch of the GGGI-New Climate Economy (NCE) Africa Initiative and the regional launch of the 2016 NCE report. Furthermore, there will be site visits to display Jeju Island’s renewable energy and green growth projects.
