Bespoke Pacific Green Growth Measurement Framework
Today we launch an exciting new initiative for the Dual Citizen practice: the development of a Pacific Green Growth Measurement Framework, in partnership with the Pacific Islands Development Forum (PIDF), a multilateral agency set-up as an action-oriented platform bringing together leaders from the public and private sectors and civil society to address regional development challenges, and to enable Green/Blue Pacific economies.
PIDF’s twelve (12) member states have been trailblazers in advocating global climate action and implementing local green policies. But these countries often lack the data and tracking frameworks that speak to the unique green and blue economies in the Pacific. Given our expertise in creating the Global Green Economy Index™ (GGEI), this partnership will localize the GGEI to a part of the world facing extreme climate vulnerabilities, and create a new platform for building global awareness and support for mitigation and adaptation initiatives there. Learn more about the project here.
“Pacific islands face unique climate vulnerabilities that are not always considered in global indices and sustainability measurement frameworks. By creating this Pacific Green Growth Measurement Framework, we hope to empower our members with data and understanding to target policies and finance to the areas that need it most,” said Ambassador Solo Mara, PIDF Secretary General.
The initiative will be anchored around a series of stakeholder workshops to ensure that input from governments, private sector, NGOs and academics in the Pacific is integrated to the design of this new measurement framework. For further information about the project, please follow PIDF on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
