You are invited to a webinar co-sponsored by the Embassy of the Republic of Korea and the Royal Danish Embassy in South Africa in partnership with the Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries and hosted by SAIIA.

Post-pandemic economic recovery is at the forefront all countries’ current agendas. But post-pandemic economic stimulus should also be leveraged to address long-term climate goals. Investment in physical, human, natural and social capital will promote a sustainable, inclusive and resilient economic recovery. This responsibility lies not only with governments, but equally with private and social partners to forge a new inclusive and sustainable paradigm.

Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 (P4G) is a global initiative, commenced in 2018, with the ambition of becoming the world`s leading forum for developing concrete public-private partnerships at scale to deliver on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement. To date, 12 countries (including South Africa), 6 international organisations, and numerous business and civil society groups have joined the initiative. P4G brings together these stakeholders in innovative public-private partnerships to advance solutions to humanity’s greatest needs within the following sectors: food and agriculture (SDG 2), water (SDG 6), energy (SDG 7), healthy cities (SDG 11), and circular economy (SDG 12). 

Ahead of the upcoming 2021 P4G Seoul Summit (May 30-31, 2021), this webinar will explore the potential pathways towards “Inclusive Green Recovery Towards Carbon Neutrality”, by 1) unpacking the related development priorities and policies, and 2) learning from existing PPPs under the P4G initiative on how to overcome the challenges.
