Green Growth Best Practice Initiative

An Affiliated Program of LEDS GP

The Green Growth Best Practice (GGBP) initiative seeks to improve the quality and effectiveness of green growth planning and implementation internationally. It will facilitate peer learning by compiling, analysing, and broadly disseminating best practices at all levels of government, the private sector and civil society.


Steered by ongoing dialogue with end-users, GGBP is conducting rigorous and comprehensive analysis and making available publications and various interactive tools to inform green growth decision making, planning and implementation by practitioners and policy leaders. This will be achieved by:

  • Conducting high-quality, fact-based analysis of green growth best practices with a team of 80 expert authors from all regions
  • Documenting and sharing assessment results in a synthesis report, living handbook, policy briefs, training materials, web-site, and other audience tailored resources
  • Ensuring broad uptake and application of content through policy dialogue workshops, tailored outreach to countries, webinars, and other peer learning forums.


Launched in October 2012, the GGBP is supported by three organizations: Climate Development and Knowledge Network (CDKN), European Climate Foundation (ECF) and Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI). Ecofys, the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands, the JI Network, and the U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory are providing technical support for the project. Fifteen organizations and initiatives serve on the Steering Committee providing strategic guidance and fostering linkages with their own programmes and other related initiatives.
