GGGI's Corporate Results Framework

GGGI’s Theory of Change (ToC) reflects our organizational mission to support GGGI Member countries move towards a model of green growth that simultaneously achieves poverty reduction, social inclusion, environmental sustainability and economic growth.

To achieve this, GGGI focuses on three strategic outcomes:

  • Strengthened national, sub-national, local green growth planning, financing, and institutional frameworks;
  • Increased green investment flows; and
  • Improved multi-directional knowledge sharing and learning and South-South and South-North-South cooperation among countries.

A Corporate Results Framework (CRF) was developed and approved by the GGGI Council in November, 2015 to provide a measurable basis for tracking and reporting on progress in delivering on the Strategic Plan. For each CRF indicator, targets and results are aggregated from relevant aligned indicators at the project level.

2019 Annual Report: Greening Urban Planning and Growth

Cities are the driving force behind national and global economies, and have a critical role to play in supporting global sustainability and climate change ambitions, as well as the realization of green growth pathways. Urban areas are increasingly seen as engines of national and global wealth but face an urgent need to address their own sustainability challenges and various adverse external impacts they have on natural resources, ecosystems, and the planet. Cities have a key role to play in the realization of Agenda 2030 as well as the climate change agenda, including the Paris Agreement, and linking renewed green city planning to climate finance provides a significant opportunity for change.

Recognizing the importance of cities to the global sustainability agenda and green growth transitions, the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) has committed to working with its Members and partners to deliver inclusive, integrated urban planning, infrastructure, and mobility solutions.

This in turn strengthened cities’ efforts to grow using more renewable energy, better manage urban waste through circular economy approaches, support sustainable transportation solutions, and create new green jobs.

2018 Annual Report: Partnering to Catalyze Green Growth

Recognizing the importance of partnerships to deliver at greater scale and impact, GGGI has committed to identifying and engaging with partners that share its mission. In 2018, GGGI developed over 70 partnerships in the delivery of 30 projects. GGGI’s diverse partnerships count governments, financial institutions, the private sector, academics institutions in developing and developed countries, intergovernmental organizations, and global initiatives and platforms that bring together stakeholders and scale-up green growth impact.

GGGI’s development of longer-term partnerships with stakeholders benefit its Member and partner countries and the organization itself. Prioritizing delivery of work with strategic partners rather than outsourced consultancies allows GGGI to build its in-house capacity and better maintain and share knowledge gained though project implementation. GGGI’s growing network of partners provide Member and partner countries with increasing opportunities to leverage knowledge and capacity and mobilize climate finance to realize green investments.
