Come along to two seminars on “Green Growth” at Tokyo Development Learning Center (TDLC) connecting other Distance Learning Centers. Green Growth is a globally relevant approach to sustainable economic growth.  Expert speakers from Japan, China and Korea will update and share knowledge about each country’s Green Growth policy formation and its implementation process to date. They will also take part in a regional dialogue to further disseminate the concept of Green Growth and to analysis and discuss relevant issues within Asia and beyond. 

What is Green Growth and why is it important to the East Asia Pacific region?

Green Growth is a term to describe a path of economic growth which uses natural resources in a sustainable manner. It is used globally to provide an alternative concept to standard economic growth.  Environment Ministers gathered at the 13th Tripartite Ministerial Meeting among Korea, China, and Japan held in Busan, Korea on April, 2011, expressed concern over the negative impact of climate change on sustainable development, ecosystems and the environment. The Ministers agreed that it is imperative for countries in Asia to continue their economic growth to alleviate poverty and to achieve social progress, while at the same they emphasized the need for increased dialogue on Green Growth by joint research, workshops and other forums.

The Green Growth seminars will be co-hosted by TDLC with Korea Development Institute (KDI) School, and Asia-Pacific Finance and Development Center (AFDC) in collaboration with the Global Development Learning Network (GDLN) - connecting with Korea, China, Japan and other countries via videoconferencing system.
