This video is part of the UNRISD project "Social Dimensions of Green Economy and Sustainable Development" - http://www.unrisd.org/greeneconomy

To reduce poverty, social policy cannot be separated from efforts to create structural change, and should not be separated from economic and environmental policy. This video highlights the need for social policy to move beyond social protection and compensation towards a more "transformative" role in supporting sustainable development.

This is the third video in the series "Bringing the Social to Rio+20".

Footage is based on recordings and interviews from the UNRISD conference "Green Economy and Sustainable Development: Bringing back the Social Dimension" (2011).
