Course Title: Indicators for an Inclusive Green Economy: Advanced Course




Course Outline 


This course is in collaboration with Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE).

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 advanced e-learning experience builds on the concepts and processes described in the Introductory course and focuses particularly on the application of the Partnership for Action on Green Economy’s (PAGE) Green Economy Progress (GEP) Measurement Framework. The GEP Measurement Framework has been supported by PAGE and developed by its partner UN agency, the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment). This framework provides a methodology for comparing performance on Inclusive Green Economy over time. 

The course has been developed under the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE), in collaboration with the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITCILO). 




Course Objectives  

The course explores the conceptual underpinning of the GEP Measurement Framework and how it contributes to the “beyond GDP” measurement agenda. Firstly, it explains how progress (or regress) on a single indicator can be measured and how these indicators can be combined into the GEP Index, with its weighting system. Secondly, it describes how to measure progress on a Dashboard of Sustainability and how to combine this information with the GEP Index to create a system for ranking countries that is informative to policymakers.



Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Illustrate the concepts, methodology and application of the GEP Measurement Framework;
  • Select indicators for a customized country application and interpret relevant results;
  • Explain how countries’ progress can be compared in a global application of the GEP Measurement Framework.
