Overview of the Green Growth Working Group

Objectives of the Group

As a long-term goal, the Green Growth Working Group (GGWG) aims to mainstream green and inclusive growth strategies in private sector development, while advocating for the importance of private sector development when implementing green and inclusive growth strategies in other areas of development cooperation. The other main goals are:

  • To allow participating members to use knowledge and guidance acquired through the Working Group in their agencies for mainstreaming inclusive green growth through advocacy, policy development and/or programme development.
  • To advance knowledge-sharing on inclusive green growth in PSD through exploring and disseminating experience and lessons learned on new topics.

The Working Group is chaired by Mette Grangaard Lund of ILO.
