Resilient Ethiopia: Sustainable growth in a changing climate

Past Event Skylight Hotel, Addis Ababa From to

The IGC in partnership with the Ministry of Planning and Development, Ethiopia is pleased to host a full day conference on the theme of inclusive growth, which aims to guide the research agenda surrounding sustainable growth and present recent and topical findings to help identify critical research gaps. The event includes participation by policymakers, international and local researchers, industry leaders, and other experts.

The plenary session launches the IGC’s White Paper on innovation, growth and the environment, which explores a path for growth in developing countries that protects the health of the planet and its citizens. The presentation is tailored to the Ethiopia context and helps set the research agenda surrounding inclusive growth, notably in areas extending beyond more traditional environment and climate change mitigation focus. The plenary is complemented by three technical sessions on adaptive farmers, resilient cities, and sustainable jobs allowing us to explore in more depth opportunities and challenges around sustainable economic development.
