According to the 2011 OECD Green Growth Strategy, green growth policies and strategies can unlock opportunities for economic growth particularly in emerging economies. Effective water management has been identified as a crucial catalyst for promoting green growth. According to the Secretary General for OECD Ange Gurria, “Investing in water security will drive sustainable growth. These investments must be well-planned, fit in with broader development agendas, benefit local communities and the environment, and be flexible enough to adapt to changing circumstances”.
Drawing on their recent work on policies to support green growth and on water economics and governance, OECD prepared a policy perspectives brochure. The brochure lays out opportunities to manage and invest in water, identifying key policy options that local, sub national and national governments can use to assist the transition towards greener growth.
