G20 Development Working Group Workshop on Inclusive Green Growth, July 2013



Moscow, 7 July 2013



              The purpose of the workshop was to expand the G20 Development Working Group’s (DWG) dialogue with representatives from developing countries, especially low-income developing countries, on the lessons learned from their own experiences in designing and implementing inclusive green growth strategies. The workshop provided the opportunity to examine in-depth the practical application and experiences on the ground with the implementation of some of the specific tools highlighted in the Annex to the G20 report “A Toolkit of Policy Options to Support Inclusive Green Growth” or “IGG Toolkit Report”. The workshop promoted the sharing of experiences on strategies, policies and instruments for inclusive green growth and presented the state of play of the Dialogue Platform on Inclusive Green Investment (DPIGI).

The discussion contributed to advancing the DWG’s objectives in three respects:

  • Enhance developing country’s engagement in the G20 IGG work;
  • Enhance understanding among policymakers in developing countries of the practical dimensions to applying  IGG tools, as well as needs from developing countries;
  • Explore how the international co-operation can support developing countries in transitioning to the green growth path.

This workshop was organised by the OECD with input from the other International Organisations (AfDB, UN, World Bank) at the request of the Russian Presidency and other G20 members. Many G20 members attended along with ten developing country representatives: Cambodia, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Kenya, Moldova, Mozambique, Philippines, Rwanda, Vietnam, and the Minister of Energy in Sierra Leone.
