The way forward after Rio+20 - Greening the economy through collective action for sustainability

The event will provide a platform for participants to discuss solutions to interlinked challenges such as poverty eradication, social development and ecological sustainability by exploring the importance of valuing and safeguarding ecosystems including biodiversity and the goods and services these provide as the bases for economic activity and the livelihoods on which many people depend. Discussions will revolve around the need for conducive and coherent policy and institutional frameworks as well as good governance and best practices. In other words, the focus will be those conditions needed to create an enabling environment that incentivizes relevant stakeholders to develop innovative solutions and establish partnerships to: improve food, water and livelihood security, and at the same time conserve natural and environmental resources including mountain ecosystems. Different perspectives and experiences (e.g. sustainable mountain development as well as private sector initiatives for developing innovative options for the sustainable use and conservation of biodiversity and ecosystem services) will be showcased as examples of how collaborative action between key stakeholders can provide solutions that contribute to sustainable development and poverty reduction.

During the workshop, participants will identify and suggest innovative nature-based options and solutions that can foster both social development and the sustainable use of the natural environment, which contribute to pave the way for the transition to a green economy. Panel discussions involving experts and policy-makers will be held and the active participation from the audience will be encouraged through a Q&A session. The workshop will contribute to generate ideas to promote innovations and design strategies and approaches at the national and global level that promote green growth and development.
