Green Growth e-Learning
"The Green Growth on-line e-Learning facility takes an integrative, multidisciplinary approach towards promoting environmentally-sustainable economic growth. Moreover, the facility is designed to educate participants about the most innovative, cost-effective approaches to Green Growth. Structured around a series of interactive training modules, the curriculum encourages participants to actively reflect on the ways a Green Growth strategy can be adapted to their home country. The modules will enable:
- The introduction of Green Growth as a solution for addressing the development challenges facing countries in Asia and the Pacific.
- The familiarization of participants with appropriate tools to measure emerging environmental/economic/social issues in the region."
"The various training courses offer participants a set of interactive and visually appealing modules. Certificates will be issued upon successful completion of each module, and after submission of a case study documenting examples of policies and actions related to the topic in question. Participants will be coached by an on-line trainer, and will have access to an on-line reference library with readings and video materials on Low Carbon Green Growth and the Economics of Climate Change."
Low Carbon Green Growth Roadmap for Asia and the Pacific
"The Low Carbon Green Growth Roadmap for Asia and the Pacific explores the opportunities that a low carbon green growth path offers to the region. It articulates five tracks on which to drive the economic system change necessary to pursue low carbon green growth as a new economic development path. In particular, the “visible structure” of the economy, comprising such physical infrastructure as transport, buildings and energy systems, together with the “invisible structure”, which encompasses market prices, governance, regulations and lifestyles, have to be re-oriented towards resource efficiency. The Roadmap provides policymakers in the region with a comprehensive list of policy options and practical implementing strategies as well as examples of successful practices, woven through more than 100 fact sheets and case studies.
The Low Carbon Green Growth Roadmap for Asia and the Pacific was developed under the project Development of a Low Carbon Green Growth Roadmap for East Asia with funding from the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), under the East Asia Climate Partnership."
"This course contains the following five tracks: improving the quality of growth and maximizing net growth; changing the invisible structure of the economy: closing the gap between economic and ecological efficiencies; changing the visible structure of the economy: planning and designing eco-efficient infrastructure; turning green into a business opportunity; and formulating and implementing low-carbon development strategies."
