The Green Growth Best Practice (GGBP) initiative seeks to improve the quality and effectiveness of green growth planning and implementation internationally. It is designed to facilitate peer learning by compiling, analysing, and broadly disseminating best practices at all levels of government, the private sector and civil society.
Steered by ongoing dialogue with end-users, GGBP is conducting rigorous and comprehensive analysis and making available publications and various interactive tools to inform green growth decision making, planning and implementation by practitioners and policy leaders. This will be achieved by:
- Conducting high-quality, fact-based analysis of green growth best practices with a team of 50 expert authors from all regions
- Documenting and sharing assessment results in a synthesis report, living handbook, policy briefs, training materials, web-site, and other audience tailored resources
- Ensuring broad uptake and application of content through policy dialogue workshops, tailored outreach to countries, webinars, and other peer learning forums.
Topics for the assessment were determined based on a consultative process with more than 100 green growth policy makers and practitioners from around the world. They are:
|Planning and |
|1. Planning and Coordination Processes – What green growth planning approaches can
best/have proven to achieve long-term transformation, government agency and stakeholder
buy-in, and mainstreaming with development programs?
2. Monitoring and Evaluation – What are best practices with design and implementation of
green growth monitoring and evaluation programs and feeding evaluation results into policy
learning and implementation?
3. National and Sub-National Integration – What approaches have proven most effective
for advancing green growth through coordinated programs at national and sub-national
levels and across governments?
|Analysis and |
|4. Benefits and Building Support- What approaches have been most/proven effective in
building a case for a country or region to embark on a green growth plan and in evaluating
and communicating development benefits to build decision-maker and stakeholder support?
5. Option Analysis – What methods and tools are available and have proven of greatest
value in evaluating the costs and benefits of alternative green growth options, including the
opportunities for enhanced economic competitiveness and other impacts?
6. Goals and Baselines – What are the most successful approaches that countries have used
in establishing well defined GG goals and baselines and using these goals to drive design of
green growth programs?
|Policies and |
|7. Policy Design - What types of green growth policies and approaches to policy design and
implementation have proven to be most effective at achieving concrete benefits through
near-term wins and long-term social and economic transformation through green growth?
8. Public and Private Partnerships and Interactions – what approaches have been most
successfully used in green growth planning and implementation to engage with the private
sector and to mobilise private sector leadership and action?
9. Financing Strategies - What measures are/proven most effective at mobilizing finance
from domestic, international, and private sector sources for green growth?
