OECD Green Growth and Sustainable Development Forum

High-Level Opening Session

Nov 21, 2023 | 8:30 AM - 9:45 AM


The convergence of the digital and green transitions presents both opportunities and challenges for societal efforts to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. This high-level opening session examined questions such as: • What are the joint impacts of the twin transitions on competitiveness of sectors and regions, labour conditions? • How to ensure that no-one is left behind? • How can digital technologies improve the design, monitoring and enforcement of environmental policies, and what are the possible negative impacts? • How can SMEs emerge more resilient, innovative and competitive from these societal transformations? • What role do digital technologies play in ensuring smart, inclusive, and sustainable cities? • How has the international landscape shifted since the adoption of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and the Paris Agreement, and how could this affect international co-operation on green growth? This session addressed these and related issues to set the scene for the Forum on Green Growth and Sustainable Development.
