The green growth transition will be large, system-wide and structural. In other words, a new industrial revolution. According to a new policy brief published on January 26, by the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment at London School of Economics and Political Science, this will require new green growth policies that foster economic growth and development while ensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which our well-being relies (OECD, 2011). More and better evidence is needed to support the design of effective green growth policies and to understand their impact on the economy.
This policy brief summarizes the main policy implications of a two-year research program, sponsored by the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), which aimed to contribute to the growing evidence base. The research program focused on a number of important aspects of green growth, primarily as related to climate change, namely climate-resilient development, the economics of internalizing the carbon externality via carbon pricing and the impact of green growth policies on jobs and innovation.
