Workshop on Measuring the Potential of Green Growth in Chile

Jointly organized by Chile's Environment and Labor Ministries in cooperation with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development's (OECD) Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) Programme, this workshop will seek to identify, within the framework of the OECD Green Growth Strategy, measurable indicators for Chile's transition to a low-pollution, low-carbon and resource-efficient economy, with a focus on three sectors: sustainable construction; sustainable tourism; and consumption and production of firewood. Among the discussion themes will be green environmental assets, greening production and consumption, green jobs and skills, and sustainable strategies for local public and private actors.
