GREEN GROWTH AND THE ECONOMICS OF CLIMATE CHANGE

11:45-13:00 Pavilion 8, Conference Hall 8.3
The largest global contributors of greenhouse gases impacting climate change have recently indicated that they are now prepared to introduce more concrete measure to curtail emissions, while taking steps to ensure a more efficient use of resources. With climate change taking an increasingly important role in bilateral relations amongst the largest economies, can we expect this to translate into new global agreements to manage climate-related risks? Will economic decision-making give more weight to green and sustainable growth factors? Will we see the emergence of low-carbon and resource-efficient systems on national and regional levels? What can be done at the national level to finance an orderly transition to an economic growth model resilient to climate change?
