Shifting towards socially-just, green-dynamic and resilient growth

Economic development comprises much more then increases in real GDP per capita. A socially and ecologically sustainable and gender-friendly development regime needs to be based on socially just, resilient and green-dynamic growth. Such a qualitative growth model will allow high productivity increases, structural changes in the direction of ecologically-oriented production and consumption, a relatively equal income distribution and participation of everyone in the welfare gains of the society.
