In the lead up to the Assembly and Council Session, GGGI held two-week-long e-consultations with its Members to discuss agenda items, including updates on membership, accession, and country programming; reports on programs and operations; as well as review GGGI’s on-going efforts to track and report on impacts.
On a related note, GGGI organized a series of virtual events titled: “Transformative Green Growth Knowledge Sharing” in the margins of the Joint Session. The events served as a platform to bring together representatives of governments, donors, and partner organizations as well as GGGI’s country/thematic teams. Members and partners of GGGI had an opportunity to discuss their efforts and commitment to green growth solutions, highlighting key achievements and initiatives.
