Description To date, the worlds economy has been resource intensive and economic development has often led to increased poverty and a widening of the gap between the rich and the poor. Traditional economic growth strategies and approaches have undervalued ecological goods and services, which form the basis of all economic activity. A green economy, on the other hand, aims to improve the efficiency of natural resource use so as to improve human well-being and reduce ecological scarcities and environmental risks. This document, the final draft of the Green Economy Strategic Framework for the City of Tshwane (the Strategic Framework) aims to provide a strategic guide for low-carbon, equitable economic development that can enhance Tshwanes transition to a green economy and facilitate a sustainable development path. This section outlines how the green economy concept developed in response to the worlds growing need for sustainable development. It provides a national and provincial perspective to better outline how a green economy can be achieved, and describes a policy that can facilitate the transition to a green economy.
