Abstract

Green growth is increasingly being integrated into national development plans as a means of simultaneously achieving economic growth and environmental goals. However, green growth approaches are disparate given the different stages of development, resource endowments, socioeconomic characteristics, and unique development challenges in countries. This study aims to build a country assessment tool called the Green Growth Potential Assessment (GGPA) to help policymakers formulate and adopt green growth strategies that are tailored to their country context. GGPA uses a set of country indicator data — presented in the form of country scorecards — to benchmark country performances, which serves as a starting point to identify the priority green growth issues, their causes, and possible remedies.
