The Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) has developed a key tool for policymakers, analysts and other stakeholders for understanding how green economy is progressing. The Green Economy Progress (GEP) Measurement Framework helps countries evaluate their overall progress towarda an Inclusive Green Economy and to enable a cross-country comparison of progress. This report presents an application of the GEP Framework that tests its main implications at the global level.
The purpose of this test was to (i) demonstrate the validity of the methodology, (ii) improve its design, and most importantly, (iii) enrich green economy policy making analysis. The report provides a comprehensive overview of the GEP Measurement Framework, demonstrating its validity through a beta test and its value as a green economy inidcator and outlining criteria that compose the GEP Measurement Framework. In addition, it presents the results of the beta test applied to the years 2004 to 2014, and suggests several future considerations, including ways through which the framework may be expanded.
On 20 September 2017, the GGKP held a webinar on the GEP Measurement Framework - a full recording is available here.
