Securing social justice in green economies: a review and ten considerations for policymakers

‘Green economy’ and ‘green growth’ policymaking is moving to the centre of many national development strategies. Green policies should enable countries to manage their natural resources more sustainably and efficiently, diversify into new green markets and secure the environmental foundations of development. But do they automatically increase social justice?

Green and just development requires two key ingredients: integrated policymaking and a holistic outcome framework combining environmental, social and economic objectives. Focusing on developing countries, this paper draws on learning from national case studies and international analyses. It concludes with ten critical considerations for shaping green and just national strategies and policies.
