Green means growth?

Kandeh Yumkella - director-general of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization

Today our guest is Dr. Kandeh Yumkella. The ongoing Gulf of Mexico disaster has reminded us just how destructive human industrial activity can be for the natural environment. However, more than a billion people around the world still lack access even to electricity. Is the development of the “Third World” possible without the further destruction of nature? Is the fight with climate change compatible with industrial development? We will be discussing these questions with the director-general of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization.
