The OECD is undertaking a major project on the economic growth and investment implications of the transition to a low-carbon, climate resilient economy in the context of the German G20 Presidency.

Below are some of the questions to be debated at an OECD-hosted international conference taking place on 23 May 2017 in Berlin, in collaboration with the German Ministry of Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety and in conjunction with the Petersberg Climate Dialogue.

  • How can governments ensure that climate-friendly growth policies provide a major boost to short-term growth while increasing longer-term resilience?
  • What development pathways will get us to the Paris Agreement outcomes?
  • How do investment flows need to change to get us there? What are the growth and structural implications of going low carbon?
  • How can governments create the conditions to drive a prosperous transition?
