Green Growth and the Law

You are here

Taken together, legal and regulatory reforms along with strong governance systems and established rule of law create an enabling environment for promoting economic growth while simultaneously protecting environmental values and human rights. The GGKP Green Growth and the Law Research Committee assesses what is well-understood about how law enables or undermines green growth and evaluates knowledge gaps by identifying linkages that remain poorly understood or sectors where the role of the legal system has not adequately been established.
