The 3rd PAGE Ministerial Conference took place on 10-11 January 2019 in Cape Town, South Africa. Over 500 leaders and innovators from the government, private and the civil society sectors from more than 50 countries- met to discuss on the Policies and Strategies to advance Inclusive and Sustainable Economies.
The week in Cape Town featured a series of global events around Green Economy. It opened on 8 January with the Green Economy Coalition Global Meeting where delegates debated and made policy recommendations to achieve equitable, inclusive, and people-focused economies. The meeting was then followed by a lively debate entitled what makes your country wealthy? organized by the Green Economy Coalition and the Green Growth Knowledge Platform in partnership with CNBC Africa.
