OECD Green Growth and Sustainable Development Forum

Session 5: OECD-GGKP joint session on Green growth and international cooperation in the context of new global challenges

Nov 22, 2023 | 10:15 AM - 11:30 AM


This session brought together five key inter-governmental organisations working on green growth to discuss how socioeconomic and geopolitical changes affect the prospects for international co-operation on green growth and what opportunities we should explore to strengthen it through their joint initiative, the Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP). The pandemic and the armed conflict in Ukraine have greatly disrupted the established trade and supply chains, diverting political priorities and resources from collaborative efforts on green growth towards efforts to stabilize national economies. At the same time, concerns over data security and access to critical materials for green technologies may adversely impact the spread of global value chains. Together these changes represent a substantial shift in the international landscape over the past decade. Yet the rapid rise of AI and digitalisation can provide opportunities for countries to work together more efficiently towards green growth goals, if underpinned by effective knowledge sharing, data exchange and collaboration. Indeed, evidence from the pandemic points to increased resilience of digitally advanced firms, as they were able to consistently introduce adaptive changes and minimize or reverse impacts on production, profits and jobs. Such innovative approaches by businesses and others offer perspectives for revived cooperation on the subject of green growth in the context of disrupted supply chains.
