Global Organizations to Expand Cooperation on Green Growth for Development

Mexico City meeting points to further, deeper knowledge-sharing, policy push



Mexico City, January 11, 2012

Governments looking to design and implement green growth policies and move towards a green

economy now have a new source of information and assistance. Four leading global

organizations today signed a Memorandum of Understanding to create the Green Growth

Knowledge Platform, a cutting edge global initiative that will identify and address major

knowledge gaps in green growth theory and practice. The agreement was signed by the Global

Green Growth Institute, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, the

United Nations Environment Programme, and the World Bank.


“This MoU marks the formal launch of essential international cooperation on testing, exploring,

and refining policies and actions on green growth for practical implementation in both developed

and developing countries,” said Richard Samans, Executive Director of the Global Green Growth


The coming decade will offer major opportunities for synergy between environmental and

economic sustainability. For example, developing countries can factor “green” into their new

investments in infrastructure and can further develop agriculture and other natural resources to

improve livelihoods, create jobs, and reduce poverty.
