22 SEP 2020
Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP)

How and to what extent does South Africa’s COVID-19 recovery strategy support green industry?

How can green industrial policies support immediate and long-term recovery in South Africa and worldwide? 

What specific policies can boost employment, competitiveness and growth in South Africa and beyond while generating long-term green and inclusive outcomes? 

What is the role of the private sector in promoting green industrial development for a sustainable economic recovery?

In this #GGKPwebinar, experts from the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), South Africa's Department of Trade and Industry (the dti), Trade & Industrial Policy Strategies (TIPS), United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the University of Johannesburg will discuss how green industry policy can stimulate low-carbon growth, boost competitiveness and create jobs, while helping to avert future crises. 

This webinar will also showcase UNEP’s EC-funded Green Economy Policy Review methodology and presents the findings from its analysis of South Africa’s industrial policy framework. These include the need for resilient transition planning and improved cross-governmental coordination.
