Hide / Show Abstract

Green growth has been a strategic pillar of the OECD’s work since 2009, when OECD member countries mandated the organisation to develop a Green Growth Strategy. Green growth has entered a number of areas of work in the OECD, including the Directorate for Public Governance and Territorial Development. The Directorate’s mission is to help governments at all levels design and implement strategic, evidencebased and innovative policies to strengthen public governance, respond effectively to diverse and disruptive economic, social and environmental challenges, and deliver on governments’ commitments to citizens.
