Event description
Latecomer development in the global green economy

About this event

In recent years, the paradigm change toward a global green economy has been gaining speed. More than 110 countries, many of them in the low and middle income groups, have pledged to achieve climate neutrality by 2050 or earlier. More importantly, major players have substantiated their plans by finance and pathways to implementation. These transformative policy reforms will leave no country unaffected. They open up windows of opportunity for new economic activities, employment and competitive advantages.

Latecomers to the globalised economy can use the new opportunities to catch-up with leading economies, but timing and sequencing of suitable reforms is far from trivial and requires a sound evidence basis. Aalborg University, German Development Institute, Oxford University and Università di Pavia have addressed this need by publishing a Special Issue of World Development and a Special Section of Industrial and Corporate Change, to structure the debate, add to evidence, and inform policymakers in search of the right coping strategies. These present a unique set of case studies on green economic opportunities, spanning a wide range of economic activities.

We cordially invite you to the presentation and discussion of the main results on 01 June 2021, 16:00-17:30 CET, online. Editors Rasmus Lema, Xiaolan Fu, and Roberta Rabellotti will present their Special Section on “Green windows of opportunity: latecomer development in the age of transformation toward sustainability”, and editors Tilman Altenburg and Anna Pegels will present their Special Issue on “Latecomer development in a greening world”. The event will be recorded and the recording made available online.
