Marianne Fay, the Chief Economist of the Sustainable Development Network (SDN) and the co-director of the World Development Report 2010 on climate change, will introduce the Network and she will give a comprehensive overview of the 2012 World Bank report “Inclusive Green Growth: The Pathway to Sustainable Development”. In the report, World Bank economists set out an economic argument and framework for countries to begin greening their growth.
The aims of the Sustainable Development Network (SDN) are (1) to help NGOs become more sustainable through networking, resource mobilisation strategies; training in fundraising and social enterprise development. (2) to provide useful research for NGO’s, government and the private sector which will promote and encourage sustainable development. And (3), to provide education and training programmes (including assistance with creating accredited training programmes) for NGOs, government and the private sector.
Marianne Fay has held positions in different regions of the World Bank (Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, Africa) working on infrastructure, urbanisation, and more recently, adaptation to climate change. Her research has mostly focused on the role of infrastructure and urbanisation in development, with a particular interest in issues related to urban poverty. She is the author of a number of articles and books on these topics. Ms Fay holds a PhD in Economics from Columbia University.
