August 1, 2012 – Venice, Italy: From Growth to Green Growth: Interview with Stéphane Hallegate, World Bank, and Météo-France
Green growth is about making growth processes resource-efficient, cleaner and more resilient without necessarily slowing them. The work presented aims at clarifying these concepts in an analytical framework and at proposing foundations for green growth. In this interview, Stéphane Hallegatte examines the analytical case for green growth, putting it in the context of existing growth paradigms. He then discuss the link with welfare—which is what we care about rather than growth per se.
