Where does the economy need to be in 2050?

By 2050, global population will have reached 9 billion and, unchecked, resource consumption will have accelerated beyond regional and global breaking points. Avoiding that world will require a dramatic transformation of markets, governance and infrastructure as well as innovation around products and the very nature of consumption, allowing us to stick within planetary limits, avoid destroying key ecosystem services and broaden human well-being. This panel of experts comprising representatives from global companies, government and international organisations will discuss the coordinated global action that needs to be put in place for a sustainable world economy by 2050.

Valuing natural capital as a driver for green growth
Natural capital is the cornerstone of a sustainable economy. Integrating valuations of natural capital into measures of growth, incentives and business decisions is essential. Achieving it requires not only new ways of thinking about the economy, but new ways of managing it. What opportunities and challenges do this present for business, and how can governments, private enterprise and NGOs collaborate to deliver this?

Setting Africa's roadmap towards a sustainable future
The agricultural and resource based economic drivers of Africa's development have significant social and environmental impacts which, if properly managed, provide remarkable opportunities for the continent. This panel of leaders will discuss how economic growth and policy development can be achieved alongside sustainable development. What are the current gaps between policy and implementation, and what partnerships are necessary to bridge the gap and guarantee sustainable development of the involved communities?
