MESSAGES FROM THE LEADERSHIP

Message from the President of the Assembly and Chair of the Council

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 1

Strengthened green growth policies

The successful transition to green growth depends critically on countries having the right policies in place. As GGGI’s value chain makes clear, this is often an essential pre-cursor for implementation and financing of green growth projects to occur. Helping countries to develop and implement policies that prioritize and support green growth is a key focus of GGGI’s work.

This strategic outcome focuses on how well we support partner countries to put in place policies necessary to transition towards green growth.

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.

STRATEGIC OUTCOME 3

Improved knowledge sharing and learning

For the global green growth agenda to achieve optimal momentum, it requires high level political buy-in on mainstreaming green growth into national and subnational planning and the development and sharing of data and analysis on green growth best practices and methodologies. It is therefore essential that institutional relationships, partnerships and knowledge networks are formed and leveraged.

The sharing of knowledge and experience through institutional relationships, partnerships and knowledge networks will drive learning, understanding, fill up knowledge gaps and ultimately lead to action on green growth.

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.
