There are at present many attempts to seek effective ways to foster sustainable
development on the one hand, and economic growth on the other. Many countries
are now pursuing the so-called green growth, often described as the “circular
economy” and trying to green their economies. But even though this topic is
important, there is a lack of clarity around what green economy policy measures
encompass, and how green growth related to sustainable economic development
and poverty eradication can take place.
This book addresses this knowledge gap. It illustrates many experiences in
designing, implementing and reviewing the costs and benefits of green economy
policies. The emerging practices, which this book identified and disseminates, will
help to provide some important insights and much-needed clarity regarding the
types of green economy policy measures, and the institutional barriers, risks and
implementation costs associated with them. The body of knowledge generated by
this book will be very useful in offering guidance and in addressing concerns on
how to foster the integration of green economic policies and green growth with
national economic and social priorities and objectives.
The following elements can be found in many of the chapters of this book:
• principles and practices of green growth
• the implementation of green economy strategies
• the role of ecosystem services
• socio-economic issues
• economic growth and poverty eradication
• aspects of policy and governance
We thank the authors for their willingness to share their knowledge, know-how
and experiences, as well as the many peer reviewers, who have helped us to ensure
the quality of the manuscripts.
Enjoy your reading!
