GGGI's Strategic Plan

­Under the Strategic Plan 2015-2020 approved by GGGI’s Council in November, 2014, GGGI aims to be a results-focused organization committed to meet its accountability, transparency, learning and continuous improvement needs. A key priority of results-based management is to deliver more for less and maximize impact by harnessing credible evidence to scale up successes and address areas for improvement.

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.

Annual Report (2017)

GGGI’s achievements in 2017 were especially impactful as the organization successfully completed the first year of its second Work Program and Budget for the GGGI Strategic Plan 2015-2020. Building on previous policy work designed to enable green growth investment, in 2017 GGGI shifted its strategic focus toward preparing and de-risking projects to help mobilize green investment finance.

GGGI also welcomed Lao PDR as its twenty-eighth Member, and strengthened its presence in the Member countries of Senegal and the United Arab Emirates through the signing of Host Country Agreements.

Annnual Report (2015)

Two-thousand fifteen marked the first year of implementation for GGGI’s Strategic Plan 2015-2020, which focuses on supporting GGGI Members and partner-countries transition to models of growth that simultaneously achieve poverty reduction, social inclusion, environmental sustainability, and economic development.

In working toward strengthening green growth planning, financing, and institutional frameworks, the Annual Report notes that green growth policies were adopted in a number of countries with encouraging signs that these policies have the potential for transformational change.

Annual Report (2014)

The year 2014 firmly established the leadership and strategic direction of the Institute for years to come. In April, Yvo de Boer became Director-General of GGGI and committed his over 30 years of international environmental sustainability experience to strengthening the reach and impact of GGGI’s green growth initiatives. In November of 2014, the course of action that GGGI will take to ensure that our green growth activities achieve meaningful results and become green growth models of inclusive, sustainable development was clearly articulated in the Institute’s new five-year Strategic Plan.

Annual Report (2013)

In 2013, after two years of transitioning to an international organization, GGGI programs have expanded to 34 programs of change in 20 countries; collaborating in some of the world’s most innovative green growth research projects; creating emerging partnerships with the private sector; and developing new experience and expertise in all the areas which will matter in the new global economy.

Annual Report (2012)

Two-thousand twelve was a significant year for the Global Green Growth Institute. Over the course of just one year, the organization nearly doubled in size in terms of the number of programs it runs, the number of experts it employs, and the number of countries with which it has as partners. Perhaps most significantly, GGGI became a treaty-based international organization in 2012 – one of only a few in Asia and the world’s only international organization focused exclusively on green growth.
