Inclusive green growth is essential to meet the development needs of the world’s poor, while ensuring environmental sustainability and improving social welfare. However, large gaps still exist in our understanding of the linkages between economy policies, environment regulations and their social implications. The GGKP Inclusiveness Working Group explores the distributional consequences of implementing green growth strategies, their impact on employment, gender and income, how governments should best design their policies to address inequalities, and what barriers currently exist which prevent this sort of economic shift.
