Project context, objectives and description

While the awareness of and commitment to green growth are rising worldwide, green growth is a broad concept, encompassing not only different economic sectors but also different levels of intervention. Furthermore, what green growth means in individual countries and how it can be translated into specific actions depends on a wide range of factors, such as a given economy’s stage of development, its endowment with natural assets, and its social characteristics. Therefore, given the concept’s broad nature, there is a need to clarify what green growth means in a specific country’s context, identify priorities, and assess those priorities systematically. 

In the period from 2016 to 2019, GGPAs have been successfully concluded in nine countries, i.e. Cambodia, Colombia, the Lao PDR, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, Papua New Guinea, Peru, and Qatar. The assessment has proven to be a useful tool, providing policymakers with empirically founded advice and helping them to determine areas where green growth interventions can have the highest impact. Furthermore, the GGPA gives recommendations regarding the means and actions to address those priorities, which are tailored to an individual country’s context. 

The objective of the project is to identify a country’s priorities for green growth and develop recommendation on how to address those priorities.
