Register: The biggest 'private sector': what place for the informal economy in green and inclusive growth?

IIED and partners are hosting a conference in London this month that is designed to help build a new policy agenda to integrate the informal economy with inclusive green growth and sustainable development.

The event includes a 'Recognition as a first step' session on artisanal and small-scale mining with Gavin Hilson, of University of Surrey. Register your interest in attending the event by emailing informality@iied.org.

The artisanal mining session will feature insights from Jikssa Kidane, of the Ministry of Mines, Petroleum and Natural Gas, in Ethiopia, and Georgette Barnes Sakyi-Addo, of Ghana Women in Mining.

The one-day conference takes place in Westminster on 25 February 2016. The event will bring together representatives of government, civil society, business and research organisations to discuss the informal economy, hear international case studies and look at ways to reconcile informality with inclusive green growth.

The event is being hosted by IIED and the Green Economy Coalition, WIEGO, the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) and the OECD's Sahel and West Africa Club.
