Featuring 60 case studies from developing and developed countries, and reviewing governments’ and others' experiences , the ''Green Growth in Practice: Lessons from Country Experiences'' report is the first comprehensive global assessment of lessons and good practices in green growth planning.


Supported by CDKN, the European Climate Foundation and the Global Green Growth Institute, this new report provides a wealth of information on effective approaches for harnessing the power of resource efficiency and climate compatible development for advancing economic, social and environmental goals. 


The report identifies and discusses nine key areas to bring green growth planning forward: government driven planning and coordination processes; establishing a vision, targets, and baselines; assessing and communicating benefits; prioritising options and pathways; designing policies; developing strategies to mobilise private investment; fostering public-private collaboration; integrating national and sub-national action; monitoring and evaluating results.


In this launch event hosted by CDKN at ODI, the findings of "Green Growth in Practice: Lessons from Country Experiences" are presented by the report’s authors. The public audience and invited experts will have the chance to participate in a dialogue on the use and value of these results for global efforts around green growth.
