Pathways Towards Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development 

The impacts and economic consequences of COVID 19 are adding to existing complexities and are creating economic hardship worldwide. Economies have been hard hit by the crisis due to the direct disruptions in supply chains and drops in aggregate demand, resulting in much larger societal costs.  

What policy measures can countries deploy in the short and long run in response to this crisis? How can governments respond to COVID-19 in a way that supports industry and workers immediately, but also creates beneficial outcomes in the long-term? How can we strengthen industries’ capacity to improve energy efficiency, reduce resource consumption, curb pollution, and  at the same time  generate incomes, jobs, and green growth? 

These and more questions will be tackled in these advanced online training course

This course is organized by the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) agencies UNIDOUNEPUNDPILO, and UNITAR in cooperation with the Central European University (CEU).

As we navigate the current threats to human wellness, to economies and to the planet, the timely adoption of sustainable consumption and production (SCP) patterns is key to building back stronger and more resilient societies. In the wake of COVID-19, choosing more efficient production methods and implementing better use of natural resources is one of the most effective ways to reduce our impact on the environment while simultaneously advancing human wellbeing. 

In our newest brief, PAGE explores circular economy and resource efficiency using Uruguay as a key example, referring to its achievements towards resource efficiency and circular economy.
