High-level officials from the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Region and the representatives of the Development Bank of Latin America (CAF) visited the OECD to learn more about the Organisation’s work on environment and green growth.
Officials also discussed the feedback and progress made since the joint UNIDO/OECD/CAF study on monitoring green growth indicators in the LAC region , published in 2014.
This expert workshop was organised by the OECD and the UNIDO as part of the UNIDO initiative to develop and monitor green growth in Latin America by using the OECD Green Growth measurement framework and drawing on the rich UNEP experience with environmental indicators in Latin America. It brought together international experts and officials from the Latin American economic and environment ministries that were involved in production of country reports. The overall objective of the initiative is to establish a measurement framework in Latin America that would bring together economic and environmental data to help governments and other stakeholders to assess opportunities for green growth. The purpose of the workshop was to exchange experience among the users of the OECD Green Growth and UNEP indicators and to provide expert advice on country reports presented by the delegates from Latin America.
Day 1: Expert workshop providing a forum to discuss Latin American country reports.
Day 2: Capacity building meeting to discuss future work (by invitation, to be extended on June 7).
