Economic production systems and consumption patterns are both the problem and the solution to climate change. A resilient economy is not just about reducing our ecological footprint through producing and consuming less – economics can be used to drive change: aligning incentives, sparking innovation and encouraging transformation throughout the production/consumption chain. Humankind has irrevocably altered the planet’s natural systems – can we use that same human power to unleash true “Green Growth” and achieve a high and sustainable level of human well-being?

As momentum builds towards an international climate change agreement at the UN COP 21 conference in Paris, New Zealand and French experts discuss humanity’s capacity to adapt, become resilient and address the greatest challenge posed to human existence.
