Open lecture by Enrique Delamonica (UNICEF). 

In this lecture, Enrique Delamonica will discuss how access to a sustainable environment, health and basic social services affects people’s standard of living, emphasising the need for devising policies that promote employment. New jobs should contribute to protecting the environment and producing resources useful for providing equitable social services. Delamonica will also unveil how reduced poverty, social development and increased availability of resources can lead to the realisation of a Transformative Green Economy.
