  1. Green Growth in theBeneluxIndicators of local transition to a low-carbon economy incross-border regionsDr Cristina Martinez-FernandezCFE/LEEDDr Samantha SharpeUniversity Technology Sydney

  3. For  more  informa+on,  see  www.oecd.org/greengrowth  Towards green growth – why monitoringprogress at local level?•  Impacts of climate change will be variable at a local level;•  Impacts of policies to mitigate climate change will bedistributed differently across regions and localities:v  pricing carbon,v  switching to less carbon intensive energy supply andproduction,v  appropriating the opportunities presented by a transition to alow carbon economy (including the creation of both newemployment and industries).•  Impacts will be especially evident in local labour markets.3

  5. For  more  informa+on,  see  www.oecd.org/greengrowth  Policy Challenges & RecommendationsProviding consensus on cross-border indicators; what is measured, whyand how often, and how they are communicated.Recommendation 1 – Establish a method by which cross-border stakeholderscan identify the main variables associated with transition and how these will bemeasured, and build indicator development and measurement verification intolarge public investment activities.Defining suitable methodologies and metrics to assess green growthRecommendation 2 - Ensure data collection provides flexibility to isolate localsources of emissions.Identifying and resourcing local institutions to collect and report onindicatorsRecommendation 3 - Identify and resource appropriate institution/s to collectand report this data in a consistent format, which provides comparativeanalysis on headline indicators at the local, national and international level.5
  6. For  more  informa+on,  see  www.oecd.org/greengrowth  Policy Challenges & Recommendations (cont)Maximising the transition impact of large projects and infrastructuredevelopmentRecommendation 4 - Financially and logistically support data collection projectsthat are devised and implemented by local stakeholders as a way to cementthe operation of cross-border governance.Recommendation 5 - Develop processes that seek out and engage a full rangeof local stakeholders, and which equip them to participate in the discussionsand projects. Not all stakeholders are equally able to participate in theseactivities; recognising and providing resources for these participatoryprocesses increases the likelihood of ownership of the projects and outcomes.Recommendation 6 – Develop and encourage cross-border groupings of publicand elected officials to provide input into large transition projects and thusstrengthen the capacity of the Benelux Union.6
  7. For  more  informa+on,  see  www.oecd.org/greengrowth  Policy Challenges & Recommendations (cont)Fostering knowledge creation and diffusion in the green economyRecommendation 7 - Strengthen innovation capacity in the Benelux Union throughinternational co-operation in order to re-position new industrial ecologies and clusterswhile addressing the challenges of green growth transition.Recommendation 8 - Align qualification systems, accreditation and content acrossborders. Green education and green entrepreneurship can provide a focus for skillsrecognition and skills activities by the educational institutions in the Benelux. This focuscan be developed by provision of specific courses in TVET organisations and by offeringMasters and Certificate level courses in Universities and other educational institutions.Local entrepreneurs, young and old, male and female should be encouraged to set-upbusinesses through active and innovative financial mechanisms.Supporting green industries and emerging marketsRecommendation 9 - Public procurement should be used to support and encourage new‘green’ markets and should be encouraged by all levels of government and the BeneluxUnion.7
