DRIVING SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT FOR INCLUSIVE GROWTH
28 October 2020 10am - 1pm GMT
In this, the fifth episode in the series, we will examine how to support sustainable development that promotes global growth. We will also consider how to link regional connectivity with tools and policies to strengthen pandemic resilience, and examine the socio-economic consequences of Covid- 19 and how it is impacting on global growth agendas. Additionally, we will look at the role of tourism in supporting the sustainability agenda and discuss how responsible investments can improve food systems, food security and access to water. We will also consider energy requirements and examine best practice in emissions management and supporting a transition to a green economy.
