ODI, GIZ and IPRCC have been developing a collaborative, research, policy engagement and knowledge exchange programme, to promote more informed policymaking by identifying and disseminating lessons for governments, donors and the international policy community. The programme aims to provide robust evidence on effective ways to promote green growth by unleashing business investment and innovation, and will assess the economic, social and environmental impact of key selected policies and initiatives. An inception and scoping phase has been undertaken in China and India, in order to better understand the drivers for sustainable and inclusive growth and the related policy environment in each country, and to identify existing or new policies and initiatives which could provide valuable case studies. This Working Paper summarises the findings from the scoping phase, and sets out the case studies that are proposed as the focus for the ongoing research programme.
