GGGI published a report summarizing the experiences and discussing the lessons learned from conducting the organization’s Green Growth Potential Assessments (GGPA) during the period 2016-2018. It demonstrates that, the GGPA has proven to be a useful tool in helping policymakers identify priorities and address those priorities through interventions tailored to their country’s context. The experience has shown that governments appreciate the systematic, objective, and participatory nature of the assessment process as much as the analytical insights it delivers.

The Green Growth Potential Assessment is a diagnostic tool that combines data analysis and stakeholder consultation. Its purpose is to identify and prioritize a country’s opportunities for green growth as well as to develop specific recommendations for each of the identified priorities. During the past three years, the assessment process has been successfully concluded in seven countries: Cambodia, Colombia, Lao PDR, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, and Peru.
