OECD launches ‘green economy’ consultation with developing countries
June 22, 2012 Editor 0
[RIO DE JANEIRO] The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has launched a consultation with developing countries on green growth — just as these countries have been criticising the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) negotiations for being disproportionately dominated by the idea.
The consultation, ‘Green Growth and Developing Countries’, was launched yesterday (17 June) at the Fair Ideas Forum, a Rio+20 side event, organised by the International Institute for Environment and Development.
It will comprise high level discussions on a green economy draft document, to begin this week at the Rio+20 summit (20–22 June).
