Korea's Green New Deal: Myths and Realities
South Korea has adopted a Green New Deal as an official government program. It includes targeted investments in green and digital technology, the creation of hundreds of thousands of jobs, and a reduction of the country's sizable carbon footprint. Is this a major shift from the country's "Green growth" approach? Has the government followed through on its promises? What are the prospects for a true transition to clean energy in Korea?
