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.

This course explains how indicators can support policymaking in measuring progress toward an Inclusive Green Economy. It reviews conceptual frameworks to guide countries in the selection of indicators and describes various approaches to indicator measurement. Finally, the course addresses the process of indicator selection and reviews the indicator frameworks used by some international organizations.

After completing the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the role and value of Green Economy indicator frameworks and their relation to improved green economy policymaking
  • Outline Green Economy indicator frameworks and their linkages with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Analyse the process of prioritizing and selecting indicators and how this can be incorporated into a national Green Economy monitoring framework
