Global Practice

Strategic Research

Green growth is about quality and sustenance of growth, and is a pathway to sustainable development. As such, it is necessary that green growth interventions are able to realize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) aspirations with strong national context. Alternatively, given the growth imperative, well-designed and interlinked climate action and SDG implementation programs should be drivers of green and inclusive growth. The challenge here is to articulate this link between green growth, NDC and SDGs that would enable designing effective green growth interventions by development entities like GGGI.

In relation to this, sufficient and systematic understanding on countries’ NDC and SDG implementation readiness levels, especially in developing countries, is important for effective resource allocation for green growth programs. Scaling up climate and private sector financing in key green growth sectors also remains a challenge in developing countries – here translating countries’ NDC (and SDG) targets to implementable roadmaps and viable pipeline of projects remain crucial.

At sectoral level, energy and transport are major sectors of focus in developing and developed countries alike for their disproportionate impacts/links to all three pillars of green growth – economic growth, environmental protection, and social inclusion. Within these, renewable energy, energy efficiency and electric and sustainable mobility are rapidly developing and increasingly inter-linked technology fronts with immense potential for helping countries leapfrog on multiple fronts and realize NDC and SDG goals cost-effectively. Innovations in these areas are poised to be disruptive and impact the way we produce and consume energy and satisfy mobility demands. Primary challenge here is to design strategies with strong local context in order to pave the way for rapid adoption of these technologies.
