The Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP) generates, manages and shares green growth knowledge
 21 July 2015 - Issue 5
Feature: Join the GGKP for the launch of the OECD's new tracking green growth report

Four years after the publication of their Green Growth Strategy, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is launching a new report which tracks progress towards green growth, draws lessons from country experiences and examines how to enhance policy design to deliver green growth.


Cover of the OECD report - Towards Green Growth Tracking Progress

Join the GGKP and the OECD for a webinar on 27 July, from 15:00-16:30 (Paris time) as we officially launch the report "Towards Green Growth? Tracking progress".  The webinar will feature Catherine Mann and Nathalie Girouard from the OECD, Kevin Urama from Quantum Global Research Lab, and will be moderated by Carlo Carraro, Co-Chair of the GGKP's Advisory Committee. Panelists will explore progress made to date, highlight opportunities for more effective and ambitious policy, draw lessons from green growth mainstreaming across the OECD's work programme and consider ways to enrich the OECD's Green Growth Strategy.

Green jobs are a key economic driver
Cover of the ILO report - Decent Work, Green Jobs and the Sustainable Economy

The International Labour Organization (ILO) has published the book "Decent Work, Green Jobs and the Sustainable Economy" which highlights solutions that the world of work offers for policy and practice to tackle climate change, achieve environmental sustainability and build prosperous and cohesive societies. This book demonstrates that green jobs can be a key economic driver, as the world steps into the largely uncharted territory of building a sustainable and low-carbon global economy.

Aligning climate change policies and regulatory frameworks
Cover of the OECD report Aligning Policies for a Low-carbon Economy

The report "Aligning Policies for a Low-carbon Economy" produced by the OECD, the International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Transport Forum (ITF) and the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) explores the misalignments between climate change objectives and policy and regulatory frameworks across a range of policy domains (investment, taxation, innovation and skills, trade, and adaptation) and activities at the heart of climate policy (electricity, urban mobility and rural land use). Outside of countries' core climate policies, regulatory frameworks have been built around the availability of fossil fuels, without regard for the greenhouse gas emissions implications. This report makes a diagnosis of these contradictions and points to means of solving them to support a more effective transition to a low-carbon economy.

Partnerships for better growth and better climate

The report, "Seizing the global opportunity partnerships for better growth and a better climate", from the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate, provides 10 practical recommendations that will boost economic growth and reduce climate risk.  These recommendations could deliver up to 96% of the emissions reductions required by 2030 to keep global warming under 2 degrees Celsius.
