GGKP-OECD Webinar: “Tracking the Progress of Green Growth”
Four years after the launch of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation & Development (OECD) Green Growth Strategy, the OECD is launching a new report titled "Towards Green Growth? Tracking Progress", which draws lessons from country experiences and examines how to enhance policy design to deliver green growth.
Join the "Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP)" for a webinar exploring these issues through presentations, discussion and debate on the conclusions of this new report.
To launch the report, the GGKP in collaboration with the OECD are holding this webinar on 27 July 2015, from 15:00-16:30 (Paris time). This webinar will explore progress made since the launch of the OECD's Green Growth Strategy in 2011 and highlight opportunities for increasing the ambition and effectiveness of green growth policy. It will draw 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 consider ways to enrich the OECD's Green Growth Strategy.
