  • About the Seoul Initiative Leadership Programme on Green Growth
The Asia and Pacific region has achieved more dynamic economic growth than any other region for the last decade and in the process, it has caused more significant environmental problems. The problems were largely due to growth-oriented development pursued by the countries in the region. In view of the limited environmental carrying capacity, the Asia and Pacific region needs to change its economic growth pattern. In such an effort, the Asia and Pacific region has embraced the "Green Growth" as the way forward at the 5th Ministerial Conference on Environment and Development (MCED 2005), held in Seoul in 2005. The Seoul Initiative on Green Growth, adopted at MCED 2005 is aimed at addressing major policy issues for Green Growth highlighted in the Ministerial Declaration of MCED 2005. The Seoul Initiative provides a regional cooperation framework for Green Growth, taking into account economic, social and geographical features of the region. It also provides a framework for policy consultations, capacity-building and networking for the promotion of Green Growth at regional level.
As a follow-up program of the Seoul Initiative on Green Growth, the Seoul Initiative Leadership Program(SILP) aims at:

Enhancing the capacity of government officials from the countries in the region to pursue Green Growth and share their related experiences

Cultivating human resources who will carry out the implementation plans produced by the Seoul Initiative Policy Consultation Forum
