The Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP) is a growing network of leading organisations and experts dedicated to providing policy guidance, good practices, tools, and data to support the transition to a green economy.
The GGKP actively supports knowledge-based policymaking through the recently launched Green Growth Expert Connect service, which provides policymakers from developing countries with free-of-charge access to technical and policy experts for quick and tailored guidance on a range of green economy topics.
The GGKP has an active Expert Working Group on Natural Capital, which explores state-of-the-art methods, models, data and tools in order to achieve three goals:
- To push the knowledge frontier around natural capital and green growth;
- To help mainstream natural capital in global green growth activities; and
- To support stronger implementation of natural capital commitments in national economic plans.
The group was launched at the World Bank Headquarters in Washington, DC in late 2017, and this overview provides a snapshot of the group’s progress in its first year of operation, as well as new developments on the horizon for 2019 and beyond.
The GGKP is also a core partner in the Economics for Nature programme, a six-year initiative focused on ensuring that nature has a voice in economic and planning processes, alongside the Green Economy Coalition (GEC), the Natural Capital Coalition, WWF France, and Finance Watch.
