Upcoming LEDS Events
17-18 October 2013 Montevideo, Uruguay
Regional Exchange and Practitioners Workshop: Towards an Inclusive Green Economy in Latin America and the Caribbean
The main objective of the workshop is to provide a platform for participants to present and discuss core challenges and potential solutions for promoting sustainable development, in particular poverty eradication, and assessing a transition towards an Inclusive Green Economy – including cost-benefit considerations of these policies. The event aims at facilitating an exchange on best practices for policy approaches in Latin America and the Caribbean; selected examples from outside the region will also be presented and discussed to allow for a balanced debate of inclusive green economy policies. Furthermore, the conference seeks to serve as a platform for the interchange of ideas and perspectives and the compilation of inspiring practice examples on the path to inclusive green economies.
The event will be organized jointly by the Uruguayan government1 and the BMU/UNEP/GIZ2 Green Economy project in cooperation with partners such as ECLAC (Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean), IDB (Inter-American Development Bank) and ILO (International Labour Organization).
