Meeting the short-term challenges of reviving the worldwide economy need not mean sacrificing long-term economic and environmental sustainability. A Global Green New Deal (GGND) is an economic policy strategy for ensuring a more economically and environmentally sustainable world economic recovery. Reviving growth and creating jobs should be essential objectives; but policies should also aim to reduce carbon dependency, protect ecosystems and water resources and alleviate poverty. Otherwise, economic recovery today will do little to avoid economic and environmental crises in the future. Part I puts forward the case why a GGND strategy is essential to the sustainability of the global economy. Part II provides an overview of the key national policies, whilst part III focuses on the global actions necessary to allow national policies to work. Part IV summarizes the main recommendations for national and international action, and discusses the wider implications for restructuring the world economy towards "greener" development.
