Challenges and opportunities related to green innovation and sustainability

The course will analyse the opportunities and challenges related to green innovation with regard to sustainable development, with reference to Technology and Innovation Report 2023: Opening Green Windows – Technological Opportunities for a Low-Carbon World. The course will address the conceptual framework of a green technological and economic paradigm, as well as empirical work on catch-up trajectories, to inform possible pathways for countries in order to seize green windows of opportunity. In addition, an overview of the status of green technologies will be provided, in terms of technical performance, market penetration, employment and investment, and in-depth analysis will be provided of the following three issues: developing and using renewable energy technologies; greening global value chains by switching to digital technologies; and diversifying towards production sectors that are more complex and more green. Policy recommendations supported by case studies will be presented, and the role of international cooperation in supporting countries in harnessing the full potential of green technologies will be discussed.

Delegates will learn about the opportunities and challenges that countries have faced or may face in promoting green technologies and innovation, to contribute to national development priorities and accelerate progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Delegates will be able to identify strategies for countries in order to take advantage of the green technology revolution, to build a greener, smarter, more resilient, inclusive and sustainable society, as well as areas in which the international community could support countries in leveraging green technologies for a low-carbon world.
