Advancing the Transition to an Inclusive Green Economy - A Policy Review Manual

United Nations Environment Programme (2020)

This manual provides policymakers with a methodology for conducting a review of a country’s Inclusive Green Economy Policy framework, to take the pulse of the concept and related policies 10 years after the work on UNEP’s Green Economy report was launched. The Green Economy Policy Review manual provides a step-by-step guide on how to conduct a review of an existing policy framework according to the following criteria: coherence with other policy frameworks, particularly the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), including Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), as well as existing national frameworks; and effectiveness. The manual hence looks at two levels of achievement by analyzing if: 1) the policies are aligned with national and international frameworks; and 2) the outcomes of the policies correspond to the intended objectives. The methodology in the manual was pilot tested in Hainan Province, China, Mongolia and South Africa, which helped refine the methodology.
