Lessons learned from a joint cross-country workshop in the East Africa Region
The Inclusive Green Economy (IGE) in Practice program is a capacity development program to increase the knowledge and application of environmental economic policy instruments, organizational change, and strengthen national systems for inclusive and sustainable economic development.
The program is ﬁnanced by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and is implemented by the University of Gothenburg via Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development (GMV) and the Environment for Development Initiative (EfD) in collaboration with EfD centers and partners in the ﬁve East African countries: Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda.
The joint efforts during a workshop on 23 – 24 November 2021, on sharing experiences of strategies and policy instruments for an inclusive and green economy, brought civil servants and academics into the same kitchen, discussing recipes for policy mixes that lead us towards an inclusive green economy.
This report summarizes what they shared and learned during the workshop.
