Saturday, November 23, 2019 — Today, the Republic of Angola and the Republic of Ecuador officially became the 35th and 36th Members of the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) following the deposit of their instruments of accession with the GGGI Director-General.
As GGGI has now expanded to represent a total of 36 Members, it now is able to draw upon the experience and lessons learning from a broader pool of green growth experiences and has the opportunity to connect a larger group of relevant actors and stakeholder to come together to contribute to developing green growth projects and achieving sustainability for each of their respective regions.
With their new Membership, the Republic of Angola will work as part of the overall Africa and the Middle East region of GGGI and will benefit from the sharing of best practices and lessons learned from other GGGI Members and partners of the region. The Republic of Ecuador will collaborate with partners and stakeholders in the Latin America and the Caribbean Region on workshops and projects that aim to facilitate the transition towards green growth and assist the region in gaining access to climate finance.
On November 21, the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) became the 34th Member of GGGI after formally submitting its Instrument of Accession. The OECS is also the first regional integration organisation to become a Member of GGGI. Since the establishment of the GGGI Caribbean office in 2019, located within OECS Commission headquarters in Saint Lucia, the two entities have worked together to pursue a joint programme of activities in support of capacity building and development of green growth options in OECS countries.
