In its strategy „Sustainable economic development, training and employment“ BMZ shifts gears towards a perspective of a just and green structural transformation. Participants presented and discussed six innovative and actionable policy areas to support the new strategy, namely:

  • Phasing-in eco-social fiscal reforms in a just and acceptable way
  • Promoting inclusive green finance to enable just transitions
  • Creating green demand: Sustainable consumption and circular economy
  • Green hydrogen partnerships for local value and industrial competitiveness
  • Converting the shift to sustainable cities into an economic stimulus package for employment generation
  • Adopting a green industrial policy perspective and enlarging policy space in international trade rules

The detailed recommendations can be found in this input paper and this current column.
