Lise Grande, United Nations Resident Coordinator and UNDP Resident Representative speaking at the DSDS’s 2013 session on ‘Employment and Growth benefits of a Green Economy’. Stressing the role of a green economy in spurring growth, improving social equity, preserving the environment, and in turn, achieving sustainable development, she said, “We think green economy is a good idea because it is the fastest and most effective way of delivering what we in the UN refer to as the triple crown of development: economic growth, social equity and environmental sustainability.” [Photo: UNDP India]
