Towards Green Growth?

Tracking Progress

image of Towards Green Growth?

The 2011 Green Growth Strategy provided initial guidance to governments on how to achieve economic growth and development, while preventing costly environmental damage and inefficient resource use. What progress have countries made in aligning economic and environmental priorities since 2011? This report attempts to evaluate this progress and highlight where there is broad scope to heighten the ambition and effectiveness of green growth policy. It draws lessons from green growth mainstreaming across the OECD’s work programme, notably in terms of how governments can maximise institutional settings to seize economic opportunities surrounding the transition to a green economy, and considers ways to enrich the Green Growth Strategy based on work undertaken since its launch.

Revisiting the Green Growth Strategy

This chapter surveys the considerable volume of OECD work relevant to green growth undertaken since release of the Green Growth Strategy in 2011, representing more than 130 OECD sectoral and issue-specific publications across virtually all applicable policy areas. Based on this work, as well as country experience to date (Chapter 2), the chapter proposes five enhancements to the Green Growth Strategy, to help ease country implementation, give renewed vigour and direction to country efforts, and provide an updated framework to guide policy work. The chapter concludes by proposing a number of forward work priorities related to green growth for governments, the OECD and other relevant institutions.
