The Green Growth Potential Assessment (GGPA) is a diagnostic tool that combines data analysis and stakeholder consultation. Its purpose is to identify and prioritize a country’s opportunities for green growth as well as to develop specific recommendations for each of the identified priorities. During the past three years, the assessment process has been successfully concluded in seven countries: Cambodia, Colombia, Lao PDR, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nepal, and Peru.
This report, Green Growth Potential Assessment: Synthesis report, summarizes the experiences in each country and discusses the lessons learned during that period. It demonstrates that, given the broad nature of green growth as a concept, the GGPA has proven to be a useful tool in helping policymakers identify and address priorities through interventions tailored to their country’s context. The experience has shown that governments appreciate the systematic, objective, and participatory nature of the assessment process as much as the analytical insights it delivers.
