|Retrospective: Green Growth Knowledge Platform Annual Conference 29-30 January 2015|
|The 3rd GGKP Annual Conferencefocused on Fiscal Policies and the Green Economy Transition and it joined academics and key policy makers on more than 20 panel sessions where newly developed research on the most effective means of introducing and reforming fiscal measures in support of green growth across various national contexts were examined.In total, 13 OECD experts participated in the event representing the Economics Department (ECO), the Centre for Tax Policy and Administration (CTP), the Trade and Agricultural Directorate (TAD) and the Environment Directorate (ENV). In addition, the OECD presented its forthcoming study with the IEA, ITF and NEA onAligning Policies for the Transition to a Low-Carbon Economy. This project looks to identify the frictions and unintended consequences of policies in areas such as investment, finance, energy, taxation and innovation that may be working against climate policy. In other words, such a project is trying to involve ministers and parts of governments not typically involved in climate policy discussions. This is just one of the ways in which the OECD is trying to develop a broader, systems approach to inform green growth policy assessment and development.|

|Save the date: Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS) and Green Growth – Regional workshop for Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) 10-11 March 2015, OECD Conference Centre, Paris, France.|
|The workshop will showcase how synergies among the fields of environment, green growth/economy and sustainable development could be exploited in the view of developing effective national approaches towards measuring green growth in the EECCA region. Governments willing to pursue policies designed to promote green growth need indicators that can raise awareness, measure progress and identify potential opportunities and risks. The SEIS is currently being developed at the pan-European level to support a regular environmental assessment processes. The OECD supports EECCA countries in developing a green growth measurement framework, and invites experts from ministries of economy, environment and national statistical offices to explore how the SEIS data flows could be used in applying green growth indicators in the region.
