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




Course Outline 


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

The application of indicator methodologies often requires policymakers to make adjustments to their specific national contexts. Countries need to develop tailored and flexible national indicator frameworks that respond to their development priorities and statistical capacities whilst supporting their efforts in monitoring progress towards green economy..

This free e-learning experience 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.  

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).
