Rethinking the development model in LAC: The role of the green transition

Nov 11, 2022 | 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM


This event seeks to identify and discuss the key building blocks to rethink the development model in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and the role of the green transition. The debate will raise awareness on the importance of advancing more sustainable production and consumption models in LAC, promoting new business models, implementing active labor market policies and strengthening social protection systems while fostering new green skills to attract sustainable investments needed to finance the transition. Given that climate change affects disproportionately the most vulnerable socio-economic groups in LAC, they should be placed at the core of the mitigation and adaptation policies. An integrated approach for the design and implementation of green policies could thus help reduce multi-dimensional inequalities and achieve a more resilient development model. This event will take place live from Sharm El-Sheikh and will be livestreamed here on the OECD COP27 Virtual Pavilion.
