Indicators for an inclusive green economy: Introductory course

United Nations via Independent

Overview

The application of green economy indicator methodologies, including those developed under the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE), often requires policymakers to be trained in applying the methodologies within their national contexts. Indeed, countries require training in developing tailored and flexible national indicator frameworks that respond to their development priorities and statistical capacities and aids in their efforts in monitoring the progress towards green economy.

This course is meant to introduce the concept of indicators to support policymaking for an Inclusive Green Economy (IGE) and to illustrate the use of methodologies for selecting and applying indicators. It seeks to contribute to the capacity of countries to choose indicators for IGE relevant to their country contexts, particularly in light of the pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals.
