How can we promote a sustainable approach to growth that leaves no one behind? In the first video of our #SustainableGrowth interview series, Abou Bakarr Kamara (Country Economist for IGC Sierra Leone and Liberia) is joined by Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr (Mayor of the city of Freetown in Sierra Leone) and Matthieu Teachout (IGC Director of Policy and Research) in a conversation on ideas and progress towards sustainable and inclusive growth in developing countries.

The conversation focuses on key areas of action for cities, local and national governments to ensure a sustainable response to COVID-19, what innovative solutions are needed to deliver a green and just recovery from the pandemic, and research priorities to progress sustainable growth.
