MESSAGES FROM THE LEADERSHIP
Dear Friends and Members of the Global Green Growth Institute,
Two-thousand sixteen was one of many milestones for the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI). Building on the momentum of the Paris Agreement and other notable sustainable development initiatives, GGGI re-doubled its effort to support Member and partner countries deliver green growth and lay the groundwork for transformational change.
In 2016, GGGI completed its first Work Program and Budget (WPB) against the Strategic Plan 2015-2020.
Message from the Director-General
Dear Green Growth Stakeholders,
It was my great pleasure to join the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) in October, 2016, and since this time I have come to fully appreciate the strengths and potential of the organization. With the support of strong leadership and management, and the commitment of stakeholders, GGGI has achieved impressive growth over the last several years and now includes 27 Members with operations in 25 developing countries and emerging economies.
Indeed, GGGI’s country programs, embedded within and working side-by-side with partner governments, are one of GGGI’s greatest strengths.

STRENGTHENING POLICIES FOR GREEN GROWTH
In 2016, GGGI continued to deliver on the priorities set out in its Strategic Plan 2015-20 and Work Program and Budget 2015-16 (WPB), building on the strong initial results achieved in 2015. Over the course of 2016, GGGI continued to support Member and partner countries plan for green growth, create an environment to finance green growth, and share green growth knowledge to enhance scale and impact.
The majority of GGGI’s programs in 2016 had a strong focus on supporting Member and partner countries to develop green growth planning frameworks and adopt green growth policies - the ‘left side’ of GGGI’s value chain approach.
STRATEGIC OUTCOME 2
Increased green investment flows
The efficacy of green growth planning will ultimately be measured by the extent to which it can attract public and private financing for investment into green infrastructure. It is therefore essential that green growth plans are eventually translated into concrete bankable projects focusing on both mitigation and adaptation, and that their financial closure can be achieved through the mobilization of public and private sector investments.
This strategic outcome focuses on the mobilizing of investment towards green growth and the results are intended to reflect work on the right side of GGGI’s value chain.
MAXIMIZING ORGANIZATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS AND EFFICIENCY
GGGI has strengthened its management and administration policies, processes, and systems which are fit for purpose and aligned with standards expected of an international, inter-governmental organization.
This is necessary to provide corporate support for improved delivery of programmatic and operational priorities, while strengthening transparency and integrity.
PROJECT RESULTS REPORTS
GGGI aims to be a results-focused organization committed to meet its accountability, transparency, learning and continuous improvement needs. This section compiles the results for 50 projects which were implemented as part of the WPB 2015-16.
Since 2013, GGGI has made efforts to measure and manage its environmental footprint, especially its carbon emissions. Using the Greenhouse Gas Protocol methodology, GGGI assessed its environmental footprint in 2016 by measuring carbon emissions from Air Travel and Facility Operations.
