Green Growth has become an attractive opportunity for countries around the world to achieve poverty reduction, environmental protection, resource efficiency, and economic growth in an integrated way. Green Growth strategies generate policies and programs that deliver these goals simultaneously. It accelerates investment in resource-efficient technologies and new industries, while managing costs and risks to domestic taxpayers, businesses, communities and consumers. Green Growth, a path toward an inclusive green economy, has become a necessity to governments that face resource constraints and risks posed by climate change and environmental degradation.
The Asian Productivity Organization (APO), in cooperation with the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), is implementing a self-learning e-course from August 17 to November 16, 2015 (3 months). The course aims to provide basic information to facilitate understanding of the concept of green growth and provide a systematic approach to developing a green growth strategy for hands-on implementation in APO member countries.
The structured self-learning e-course will be implemented through the APO’s dedicated e-learning website: http://www.apo-elearning.org/moodle19/. The participants can register on this website and create their own accounts. Registration starts at 10:00 am on August 17, 2015, ongoing until the end of the course.
As the National Productivity Organization, the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP) is in charge of the coordination and promotion of the program at the local level. In this regard, DAP invites the public to register and participate in this FREE learning opportunity.
