This scoping paper explores how inclusive and green growth can be supported in fragile and conflict-affected settings (FCAS), and if there are certain approaches and instruments to support green growth, which are more or less adapted for such settings. It includes case studies on waste management in Sierra Leone, the the “Post Conflict Window” of the African Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF), and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH /German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ) & IDH Sustainable Trade Initiative: Regional Landscape Approach in Côte d’Ivoire.
A multitude of initiatives, networks and organisations have adopted the concept of ‘green growth’ in recent years, in particular following the 2012 Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development. New and innovative concepts and approaches to green growth have been designed and tested in the field.
