Securing social justice in the green economy

Kate Raworth, Steve Bass, Sarah Wykes

IIED Briefing, 4 pages

Green economy and green growth policymaking are moving to the centre of many national development strategies. But policymakers often fail to take sufficient account of the social implications and costs of such policies — and miss valuable opportunities for social synergies, to the detriment of people living in poverty. Diverse country experiences of green policymaking demonstrate a spectrum of approaches, ranging from no social analysis or action, to pursuing transformational social change. This briefing draws on
learning from a wide range of national case studies to propose ten guidelines for promoting national strategies and policies that are both green and just.
