It has been four years since President Lee Myung-Bak announced the national vision for low-carbon green growth of South Korea. In January 2009, the Presidential Committee on Green Growth (PCGG) was established and the committee formulated the 'National strategies and five-year plan for green growth' in July 2009, signifying the high-level commitment and the top-down nature of the policy making to come.
Now President Lee’s first term of office is coming to an end with a presidential election to take place in December 2012. This PM summarizes objective and subjective evaluations of the green growth policies based on interviews to experts and literature review.
