This edition's content is divided by areas of green economic development, connected through one common theme: INNOVATION.
Our interpretation of innovation ranges from technologies over to mind shifts, connecting thoughts and overall fundamentally re–thinking common practice, lifestyle, the way of doing business. Each chapter will open with a remarkable innovator and continue with a leading article from the United Nations - network and business leaders. Together with our partners, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA), the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE) and United Nations agencies, the report explores initiatives for economic growth and diversification, youth empowerment and employment, how to power lives, sustainable natural and urban environments, creativity and research, lifestyle and consumption as well as other possible enablers and partnerships.
We invite you to Dubai to exchange knowledge and spread ideas. Join us at the World Green Economy Summit on 5th – 6th October 2016 under the theme: Global Partnerships, Sustainable Future. And take a look at the State of Green Economy Report 2016.
