A New Multilateralism for Shared Prosperity: Achieving a Global Green New Deal
October 17, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The Green New Deal offers a bold and transformative vision for rethinking sustainable development in the US. It has also spurred discussions about how these policies can be scaled up to a global context. Fundamental to crafting a ‘Global Green New Deal’ is reassessing the role of international financial institutions, whose undemocratic market fundamentalism presents a major barrier to sustainable development.
Moderated by Sarah Anderson, Director of the Global Economy Project of the Institute for Policy Studies. This event is co-sponsored by the Center for Economic and Policy Research, ITUC, Boston University’s Global Development Policy Center, Bretton Woods Project, and Sierra Club and co-hosted by Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Adriano Espaillat.
This briefing will draw on the following proposals:
- A New Multilateralism for Shared Prosperity: Geneva Principles for a Global Green New Deal,
- Reforming the Bretton Woods Institutions to Support a Global Green New Deal,
- Green New Deal vs. Trump’s NAFTA Deal.
- Richard Kozul-Wright, Director, Division on Globalization and Development Strategies, United Nations Conference on Trade and Development
