Inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID) enhances and reinforces economic growth and diversification in a socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable manner guided by four overarching principles :
- No one is left behind in benefiting from industrial growth and prosperity is shared among all parts of the society as industry creates the wealth needed to address critical social and humanitarian needs;
- Every country is able to achieve a higher level of industrialization in their economies, and benefits from the globalization of markets for industrial goods and services;
- Broader economic and social progress is supported within an environmentally sustainable framework;
The concept of inclusive and sustainable industrial development is reflected by the SDG 9 “Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation countries”. The underlying idea is that countries need to activate industry as an engine of growth but not at the expense of social indicators and sustainability.
We are looking for papers with a focus on:
Methods to measure to what extent countries can industrialize by preserving a sustainable energy sector and by improving inclusiveness.
Different approaches to construct composite energy indices capturing the economic, environmental and social indicators of industrialization and dealing with trade – offs among these dimensions.
The papers of the special issue are aimed at bringing the attention of the academic and policy community on how different methodological techniques for the construction of composite indices for inclusive and sustainable industrialization can support the design and monitoring of industrial energy strategies and energy policies.
The papers should support the reflection on how to reconcile industrial policy with energy policy and to a broader extent with environmental policies beyond the energy and climate change boundary.
