  • What are the main examples of green economy policies that are currently in place in your country? (e.g., government expenditures on green infrastructure, incentives for private investment in green sectors, subsidy reform, pricing of pollution, public procurement, other)
  • Which policies, or types of policy, do you consider to be most effective in promoting a green economy and why?
  • Are poverty and other possible social impacts explicitly considered in the design of green economy policies? If so, how?

Question 11
