This green growth country assessment for
Former Yugoslav Republic (FYR) Macedonia aims to define the
outlines of a green growth path and the initial steps along
that path. According to the World Bank's recent
flagship report, green growth is 'growth that is
efficient in its use of natural resources, clean in that it
minimizes pollution and environmental impacts, and resilient
in that it accounts for natural hazards and the role of
environmental management and natural capital in preventing
physical disasters.' While most countries might agree
that such growth is a worthy goal, determining what a green
growth path might mean for a particular country is a
significant challenge. Green growth can be defined more
precisely, as economic growth with more sustainable use of
natural resources (minerals, water and clean air, and
biodiversity), with proper consideration of mitigation of
greenhouse gas emissions; with attention to adaptation to a
changing climate; and with more focus on innovation and
green jobs to enhance benefits flowing from the
technological innovation and new industries spurred by a
shift to green growth. This report takes a practical
approach to identifying specific challenges and
opportunities FYR Macedonia faces in building its green
growth future and to present them in a form useful for
decision makers. The report will address mitigation,
adaptation, and the most immediately challenging resource
sustainability issue, clean air. This report summarizes
analytic work undertaken in sectors and on issues selected
as critical for defining and understanding the green growth
path of the country, with an emphasis on climate action.
Chapters of the report start with an overview of the
relevant challenges to green growth of climate adaptation
and mitigation, and then set out the methodology applied the
findings that emerged, and consequent recommendations. The
nine sectors and issues that constitute the components of
the green growth country assessment are represented in the
opening graphic in this summary.
