The Second EGGPAL Annual Conference will provide participants with an opportunity to discuss the challenges and solutions for a broad range of green growth challenges and to identify common interests that could serve to establish communities of practice within the network.

Around 80 participants are expected at the Istanbul conference, including government officials from countries across Europe and Central Asia, mostly from Ministries of Environment, Economy, and Finance; selected government experts from other countries; experts from other international institutions and academia; and World Bank staff.
