Project context, objectives and description

The Green Growth Performance Measurement (GGPM) program is responsible for developing tools to measure green growth performance. GGGI has developed and launched its first Green Growth Index in 2019. A Simulation Tool will be linked to the Index to enable development of policy and investment scenarios for GGGI member countries. The Tool will be developed and applied in a pilot country in 2020. 

Green growth approaches differ between countries given their distinct stages of development, geography, resource endowments, and socioeconomic characteristics. Systematically comparing different countries and assessing different sectors within a country can help us to identify opportunities for green growth. Quantitative tools such as indicators and benchmarks are essential for such an analysis. Yet, given the complex nature of the green growth concept and its dependence on individual countries’ context makes measuring green growth a challenging endeavor. 

The project objectives are to i.) raise awareness and understanding of green growth ii.provide an interactive learning experience, and iii.foster a data- and evidence-driven approach to green growth. The Index and its Simulation Tool is a unique platform that will not only inform green growth stakeholders but also serve as a vehicle for knowledge-exchange and collaboration on green growth. 

GGPM aims to capture quantitative measurements of progress on green growth performance at the country level. It also aims to enhance evidence-driven approaches to the understanding and measurement of green growth performance at the country level among policymakers and other stakeholders by providing scientific, rigorous, and reliable data. By capturing and structuring green growth into an interpretable and comparable measure, the resulting product is expected to draw strong public attention and help governments prioritize their policy options to be better aligned to green growth. 

GGPM is intended to bring a greater visibility to GGGI’s flagship knowledge products and successful practices. As a GGGI flagship publication, GGPM will showcase the institute’s capacity to design and execute a major analytic undertaking while making a valuable addition to the global green growth knowledge.
