OECDMarch 2013: The Organisation for Economic and Co-operation Development (OECD) published its latest Green Growth newsletter, “Green Growth Strategy,” which informs OECD Committees and other stakeholders about OECD’s green growth activities.

The newsletter focuses on green growth in emerging and developing Asia, in the context of the East Asia Climate Partnership (EACP) program, a two-year project that aims to promote green growth in selected Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) countries. The project includes three components: a synthesis paper, highlighting green growth lessons from OECD countries; a report titled “Toward green growth in emerging and developing Asia;” and a database of green-growth indicators for emerging and developing Asian countries.

The newsletter also highlights an OECD publication, “Why New Business Models Matter for Green Growth.” The publication describes how obstacles can constrain development of new green growth business models while noting that well-designed policies can usually address such challenges.

On the Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP), the newsletter highlights the second annual conference, which will be held in Paris, France, from 4-5 April 2013, around two themes: greening global value chains; and measurement and reporting for green growth. The conference will focus on private sector implementation of green growth in areas of interest to advanced, emerging and developing countries. The newsletter also features sections on performance reviews on integrating green growth in policy work, recent publications and recent events. [Publication: OECD Green Growth Newsletter March 2013]
