Abstract: In many developed economies, green public procurement (GPP) often features as part of the procurement process, enabling public authorities to give considerations to environmental and related sustainable issues. In developing countries, green public procurement is emerging. This study which is focused on the development of a framework for the implementation of GPP in Nigeria aims to contribute to emerging knowledge discussions on GPP in developing countries. The study which is based on a comprehensive review of existing literature on green public procurement and semi-structured interviews with key informants, proposes a framework that highlights essential prerequisites for developing GPP in Nigeria. Using Nigeria as a platform, the study also seeks to provide practical guidance for policy makers in the developing world on the implementation of GPP and advances the debate on key factors necessary for GPP development and implementation in related jurisdictions.
