Green Growth and Eco-InnovationGreen growth means fostering economic growth and development, whileensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources andenvironmental services on which our well-being relies. - OECDGreen growth is the new revolutionary development paradigm that sustainseconomic growth while at the same time ensuring climatic and environmentalsustainability. - GGGIEco-innovation is any form of innovation resulting in or aiming at significantand demonstrable progress towards the goal of sustainable developmentthrough reducing impacts on the environment, enhancing resilience toenvironmental pressures, or achieving a more efficient and responsible use ofnatural resources. - European Commission Eco-Innovation Action Plan(2012)

Innovation status in Developing Countries(policy view) Insufficient green growth innovation activity and a lack of international initiatives to remedy this Current status Insufficient Suggestions integration from Focus on building innovation to innovation capacity in implementation, LDCs and a lack of international Be flexible and take risks mechanisms that to respond to unknown might support this future market needsSource: GGGI and Brookings Institute (2012) Insufficient innovation capacity in LDC countries, and scarcity of capacity building in international initiative

ASEIC Programme ConceptBasic Framework Identifying Problems Responding to actual needs Establishing sustainable business of local residents in LDCs of local people (development) model through ‘appropriate technology’ GO/ IO Some key characteristics Academia regarding SMEs • Energy shortage (water, wood and ‘appropriate technologies’ Comprehensive forest, land, materials, etc.) Development Strategy • Affordable price and funding suport • Environmental problems • Utilizing local resources (deforestation, desertification, • Generating jobs and finding Local Local drought, extinction of species, untapped local opportunities government Workforce pollution, etc.) • Small in scale and simple in design • Social and economic vulnerability • Fostering social collaboration and (low-income, lack of jobs, local development lack of education, etc) • Easily adaptable to changes in local environment ex) Solar cooker, Micro Solar Home System, Improved Solar Dryer, etc. Poverty Social Job Creation Reduction Development

  38. 38. Concluding remarks- Green Growth and Eco-Innovation can be regarded as key drivers towards sustainable development- Decoupling environmental degradation and resources consumption from economic growth requires innovative solutions from public and private sector, but developing and least developed countries has insufficient support and needs specially tailored approach- Dedicated funds to de-risk entrepreneurial investments and international program are needed to catalyze capacity building to develop innovation ecosystems in least developed countries …...- Measurable indicators for innovation activity and performance in developing countries needs to be developed to foster sustainability
