Research Programmes

The Fiscal Instruments Research Committee examines the challenges and opportunities associated with reforming environmentally perverse fiscal measures and provides policy guidance on an effective design and implementation of fiscal instruments for a green economic transition.

The Trade and Competitiveness Research Committee examines the effects of green growth policies on the patterns and volume of trade, on national and firm competitiveness, and on employment. This work stream, in the initial stages, is prioritizing the identification of data gaps and potential options for addressing them, particularly in developing countries.

The Metrics and Indicators Research Committee is first taking stock of existing green growth metrics – in terms of both coverage and methodology at the country level – and then identifying the main gaps and opportunities for new efforts in data collection, methodological work and indicator development.

The Technology and Innovation Research Committee explores the relationship between technology and behavioural change, ways to foster green creativity and entrepreneurship, barriers to the diffusion and adaptation of green technologies in developing countries, and policy instruments for promoting green innovation and technology diffusion.

The World Bank's "Data and Decision-Making Tools for Green Growth" initiative seeks to help the organization and its client countries to make investment and planning decisions that manage the deep uncertainty and disagreement associated with climate change, development patterns and other trends.
The Green Growth Best Practices (GGBP) initiative was set up to accelerate learning and to inform the design of green growth programmes, by undertaking an analysis of early experiences. In July 2014, the GGBP released the first comprehensive international assessment of lessons from experiences of pursuing green growth across all levels of government and all regions.
