The Green Growth Potential Assessment (GGPA) is a diagnostic tool developed by the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) to help countries set their national green growth agendas aided by a data-driven approach. The idea is to identify areas where a country is underperforming in terms of green growth as these areas present the most promising opportunities for high impact green growth interventions.
The GGPA process consists of three phases. In the first phase, the tool measures national green growth performance using indicators in three key green growth areas: resource efficiency, climate resilience, and natural assets. Based on the results, the GGPA creates visualizations for the country and compares performance against peer countries to identify under-performing areas. In the second phase, GGGI works with national government authorities to validate the identified priorities and build consensus on focus sectors. Finally, in the third phase, GGGI interviews green growth specialists in the identified sectors to develop recommendations on appropriate interventions.
The GGPA tool has been piloted in Peru, Colombia, and Nepal. Click "Learn more" to view a webinar about the experience.
