Abstract Countries’ efforts to pursue green growth are most effective when guided by a national strategy, ideally designed through stakeholder engagement and championed by top national officials. But to enhance effectiveness and promote coherent policies, green growth objectives should also be integrated into existing national development plans and budgets. This chapter reviews the status of ASEAN countries in terms of their preparation of green growth strategies, their integration of green growth objectives into national planning, and their mechanisms for co-ordinating multiple levels and sectors of government. So far, only two countries – Cambodia and Viet Nam – have a green growth strategy in place. However, all ASEAN countries have integrated at least four green growth objectives into national development plans and improved co-ordination. Greater coherence and co-ordination are needed to build on this progress and create synergies between green growth objectives and other national priorities.
