Delhi Ministerial Dialogue on Green Economy and Inclusive Growth
The 2011 Delhi Ministerial Dialogue on ?Green Economy and Inclusive Growth? will begin here from next Monday. The Government of India and the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD Secretariat are jointly hosting it.

The Delhi Dialogue is a step forward in preparations for the UNCSD, also known as Rio+20, scheduled to take place in June 2012 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It aims to provide a platform for international deliberations on the integration of green economy architecture and global challenges of poverty eradication, food security, and energy security.

Eradicating poverty is an indispensible requirement for sustainable development. A major cause aggravating poverty is the unsustainable pattern of consumption and production. The Delhi Dialogue will be an opportunity for high level government officials and UN agencies to explore in depth the linkages of a green economy for poverty eradication and broad-based, inclusive growth. Integrating green economy strategies and policies into poverty eradication, food security and energy security is an imperative for sustainable development.

Government officials and delegates from 54 countries and 12 UN agencies are expected to attend it.
