Project context, objectives and description

The Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP) is dedicated to advancing the green growth agenda around the world by offering practitioners and policymakers the policy guidance, good practices, tools, and data necessary to support the transition to a green economy. The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) has played a leading role in the GGKP’s development, including significant support for the GGKP secretariat in partnership with UNEP. The platform is led by a Steering Committee, including representatives from GGGI, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), and the World Bank. Overall, the GGKP now includes more than 60 partner organizations from around the world. 

The GGKP features the largest collection of research papers and publications for a greener economy from leading institutions and experts, including almost 400 case studies from over 90 countries, almost 300 official national documents that outline plans, policies and programmes to advance inclusive green growth, over 100 commitments to action on green economy by more than 30 countries and organizations under the Pan-European Strategic Framework for Greening the economy, and country data for 20 green growth indicators that chart patterns and trends from 1960 to present day. In 2019, five webinars were held on topics of 1) Free policy Advisory Services, 2) Helping SMEs Develop Strong Climate Adaptation, 3) Measuring Fossil Fuel Subsidies, 4) Managing Metals and Minerals, and 5) Gender-Responsive Green Growth. Additionally, the GGKP 7th Annual Conference and a series of events and workshops further contributed to capacity building in green growth stakeholders and the public.
