Introduction: Green Economy and Sustainable Development: Bringing back the ‘social’
Abstract:Any transition to a sustainable and equitable ‘green economy’ will require restructuring patterns of production, consumption and distribution and finding innovative development ‘alternatives’ to achieve justice on a global scale. Social dimensions – including social and distributive policies, social relationships and institutions, and the ability of all groups to participate in or contest policy choices – will be critical in driving this transformation. However, these dimensions have consistently received least attention in the triad of issues that define sustainable development.
