The GGKP has been developed in partnership between the GGGI, the OECD, UNEP, and the World Bank, to help address major knowledge gaps in green growth theory and practice, and to help countries design and implement green growth policy.
Governments must seize new opportunities to ensure that green growth - strong economies and a clean environment - offer the potential to increase the well-being of all citizens in all countries.

As world economies become more integrated, economic growth has created environmental problems that demand global solutions.
In the context of the 2012 East Asia Climate Partnership (EACP) programme, the OECD has engaged in a 2-year horizontal project, whose overarching objective is to help promote green growth in selected ASEAN countries, in line with the region’s development objectives.
