The Inclusive Green Growth Partnership aims to support developing countries to identify green growth opportunities and investments that promote inclusive, shared prosperity and equitable growth that creates employment and raises the incomes of the poorest.
The Partnership will leverage GGGI’s technical expertise to assist multilateral development banks and funds in identifying green growth opportunities and investments that promote inclusiveness, shared prosperity and equitable growth that creates employment and raises the income of the world’s poorest.
Through the partnership, the GGGI will enhance opportunities for global green investment and financing by working closely with emerging economies and least developed countries to build capacity to develop green capital projects, support efforts to promote readiness for climate finance, and prepare green investment projects that attract private capital.
“The Partnership will support developing countries identify green growth opportunities and investments that promote inclusive, shared prosperity, and equitable growth that creates employment, and raises the income of the poorest” Dr. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, President of the GGGI Assembly and Chair of the GGGI Council, and former President of the Republic of Indonesia (2004-2014).
“This partnership will raise the technical capacities of these emerging economies, reduce the barriers for critical green investment and improve the lives of millions of the world’s most marginalized people.” Yvo de Boer, GGGI Director-General
“By exploiting synergies and integrating economic growth, social protection and climate targets under the INDCs and climate adaptation, national green growth policy will have greater promise to maximize its outcomes for climate sustainability and people’s welfare. ” Dr. Shamshad Akhtar, United Nations Under-Secretary-General and ESCAP Executive Secretary
The Partnership, a joint initiative of the Global Green Growth Institute together with the multilateral development banks and the United Nations regional commissions, was launched at the 21st Conference of the Parties (COP21) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
