Thematic Strategies

Our interventions emphasize change in four priority areas in which we consider to be essential to transforming countries’ economies. While not limited to these themes, GGGI is maximizing the impact of its products and services in the following areas: Sustainable Energy; Water and Sanitation; Sustainable Landscapes; Green Cities.

In response to Member’s demands, 2015 will see GGGI increase its presence in 10 least developed and lower income Member countries across Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America. Earmarked funding will also support additional operations in 7 other countries in the Middle East and North Africa regions.

Cross Cutting

Many off GGGI’s projects and much of its thought leadership cuts across typically siloed spaces. GGGI envisions a resilient world achieved through strong, inclusive and sustainable green growth. As such, our work, leadership, and projects cut across typical domains.
