JICA-RI Senior Research Fellow Contributes to a Report focused on "Best Practices for Achieving Green Growth"

July 4, 2014

Many countries around the world today face challenges in advancing economic and social development in light of the resource constraints and risks posed by climate change and environmental degradation. Green growth—an inclusive initiatives that achieve resource-efficient, climate-resilient economic development and poverty reduction—is now a must for every country.


The Green Growth Best Practice (GGBP) initiative is a global network established with the aim of promoting green growth. It is governed by a steering committee with representatives from 13 organizations, such as the World Bank and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), working with 75 authors. On July 1, GGBP published a report entitled “Green Growth in Practice: Lessons from Country Experiences.”


The report provides the comprehensive global assessment of planning, analysis, and implementation from more than 60 green growth programs that each government around the world has engaged in. It also identifies key challenges and constraints in implementation of green growth strategies. The report provides guidance and examples to policymakers advancing such policies in their own countries.


JICA-RI Senior Research Fellow Tomonori Sudo contributed to the report as one of the authors of Chapter 6, entitled “Mobilizing Investment.”
