The Green Growth Strategy, outlined in this book, provides concrete recommendations and measurement tools to support countries’ efforts to achieve economic growth and development, while at the same time ensure that natural assets continue to provide the ecosystem services on which our well being relies. The strategy proposes a flexible policy framework that can be tailored to different country circumstances and stages of development.

Policy framework for green growth

Policies for greening growth will differ across countries, according to local environmental and economic conditions, institutional settings and stages of development. However, in all cases they need to: (i) integrate the natural resource base into the same dynamics and decisions that drive growth; (ii) develop ways of creating economic payoffs which more fully reflect the value of the natural resource base of the economy; and (iii) focus on mutually reinforcing aspects of economic and environmental policy.
