Global Practice

Climate Action and Inclusive Development (CAID)

GGGI supports Members and Partners in the development of an enabling policy environment for green growth transformations and climate action. Evidence-based analysis and broad stakeholder engagements at the hearth of national, subnational and sector level policies is key to ambitious target-setting, robust low-carbon and resilient development pathways, and socially inclusive outcomes. The organization houses world class technical expertise in Economic Modelling of Green Growth, which lays the foundation for analysis central to the development of enhanced Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), Long-term Low-Emission, Resilient Development Plans (LT-LEDS) and National Green Growth Plans, while highlighting socio-economic co-benefits such as GDP growth and employment. The GGGI Green Growth Index and Simulation Tool provide Members with a framework to test assumptions and policy solutions that best drive inclusive green growth transformations. Sector level GGGI experts in transport, waste, agriculture, forestry and energy promote front-of-the-line technological solutions, while GGGI’s team of MRV experts are focused on the development of systems for impact measurements. GGGI allocates 50% of its support to Least Developed Countries (LDCs), and through GGGI’s Climate Diplomacy work, GGGI is supporting LDC members on their engagements in UNFCCC processes. The COVID-19 Pandemic has brought on a sense of urgency for green growth and climate action, and prompted GGGI’s added focus on green recovery, particularly through decent, green jobs creation and smart green fiscal polices. Experience of GGGI Members and Partners show that effective green growth and climate action is not sustainably achieved without a deliberate focus on just transitions, poverty eradication, gender equality and social inclusion. GGGI experts in gender and social development provide support on how to maximize social co-benefits in climate action. Knowledge generation and dissemination is an accelerator of GGGI and Members’ work. GGGI is a partner of the Green Growth Knowledge Platform.
