Greening Development: Enhancing Capacity for Environmental Management and Governance
02 February 2012
This new publication from OECD (February 2012) outlines a number of steps to be considered when building capacity for greening national development planning, national budgetary processes and key economic sector strategies. The report identifies the key actors to be engaged in the decision-making processes, outlines possible capacity needs and suggests how these can be addressed.
The cyclical approach advocated in the report reflects a shift from the traditional view of capacity development as a purely technical process to one that recognises the importance of country ownership at different levels in governments and society.
Also available are a number of working papers that served as the basis for the policy guidance.
- Capacity Development for Environmental Management and Governance in the Energy Sector in Developing Countries
- Capacity Development for Environmental Management in the Agricultural Sector in Developing Countries
- Greening Development Planning - A Review of Country Case Studies for Making the Economic Case for Improved Management of Environment and Natural Resources
- Integrating Public Environmental Expenditure within Multi-year Budgetary Frameworks
