  4. 4. Definition Sustainable Development the goal of Sustainable Development is ”to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.

Definition Green Growth GG aims to foster economic growth and development, while ensuring that natural assets are used sustainably, and continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which the growth and well- being rely. OECD (2011), “Towards Green Growth: Monitoring Progress - OECD Indicators”, OECD, Paris GG is growth that is efficient in its use of natural resources, that it minimises pollution and environmental impacts, resilient because it accounts for natural hazards World Bank (2012), Inclusive Green Growth: The Pathway to Sustainable Development, 2012, World Bank, Washington, DC.

Price instruments (pricing et al.), supplemented by regulations or subsidies have encouraged green growth. The main challenge to foster GE is to coordinate policies and to develop indicators and tools for monitoring the progress of implementation. Innovation is essential to foster green growth 64
