OECD Global Forum: Building Trust and Reinforcing Democracy

Parallel session 5: Toward green democracy: The role of Government

Nov 17, 2022 | 2:20 PM - 3:25 PM



Ambitious global action on climate and the environment will call for a reshaping of public governance. Countries need to advance democratic consensus building and secure trust for green policies engaging with citizens through upgraded participatory channels. The complete range of public governance tools needs to be revamped to address these pressing challenges for the long haul. Governments also need to lead by example by greening their own operations and services. This session will discuss how governments can achieve this transformation and the opportunities this presents to prompt higher-quality public governance and democratic institutions that fit to deliver on green.
