DEPARTMENT OF PLANNING, MONITORING AND EVALUATION, PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA

By establishing a national green economy progress indicators framework, the workshop will support and complement South Africa’s efforts in transitioning toward green economy and delivering upon the 2030 Agenda. The framework will allow South Africa to monitor its progress toward a green economy, across a certain period of time, in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals. PAGE would assist South Africa in elaborating a Green Economy Progress National Framework as per PAGE’s Green Economy Progress (GEP) Measurement Framework methodology (Link).

The workshop aims to engage with relevant stakeholders, including policymakers and technical experts to:

  • Identify priority green economy indicators, in light of the South Africa’s National Development Plan (NDP), Medium-Term Strategic Framework and the SDGs

  • Conduct a mapping of existing indicators initiatives of relevance to green economy and identify opportunities for synergies with the GEP Measurement Framework

  • Identify indicator data availability and scope

  • Identify opportunities, lessons learned and challenges for a strong policy uptake post the establishment of the framework
