Growth, Development and Environmental Economics in Asia
Laurence Brahm, Author, Fusion Economics How Pragmatism is Changing the World
Chair: John Simpson, World Affairs Editor, BBC
Laurence Brahm, in conversation with John Simpson, will draw upon the ideas of the Himalayan Consensus to discuss how countries might measure growth and development performance in a way that accounts for environmental costs and assets. Reflecting on his experiences working with China's Ministry of Environmental Protection and social enterprises in the Himalayan region, he will consider how to practically apply the Consensus principles of ethnic diversity, sustainable economics and cultural preservation.
