Launch of UN/PAGE Report with interested partners from August 2017 onwards

Panel Addis in December 2017

GGKP Conference in late 2017/early 2018 involving GReCEST partners

4. Related Projects

 

At DIE we are pursuing a range of complementary activities, including various specialized research projects and a joint report with UN/PAGE on Green Industrial Policy. As ownership for the Green Transformation issue seems to be fairly weak so far among GReCEST members we will try to create synergies with other networks and bring more Green Transformation researchers into the network.

 

5. COLLABORATION WITH OTHER ENTITY

 

Synergies can be exploited in particular with GGKP Trade & Competitiveness Committee

DIE had a cooperation project with UN-ECLAC until 2016 in Industrial Policy, extension is currently negotiated => potential to bring more Latin American institutions into GReCEST

Trying to get funding from German development cooperation for future activities
