This project investigates how behavioural economics can inform the design of “norm-based” environmental policies and “behaviourally robust” markets for ecosystem services. This work is part of a broader effort of a project that seeks to identify areas where behavioural economics can have the greatest impact on environmental policy design. Forthcoming: Tackling Environmental Problems with the Help of Behavioural Insights (May 2017).

According to the "OECD Environmental Outlook to 2050: The Consequences of Inaction", global water demand is projected to increase by 55% between 2000 and 2050, and tensions could increase as domestic users, manufacturing, electricity generation and other economic sectors compete with agriculture for access to resources. By 2050, over 40% of the global population are likely to be living in river basins under severe water stress.
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.
