Green Economy Report released at the 26th session of UNEP GC

UNEP released the Green Economy Report on 21 February at its annual meeting of the world's environment ministers held in Naorobi. The layout and design of the online version of the report was prepared by GRID-Arendal.

The Report is compiled by UNEP’s Green Economy Initiative in collaboration with economists and experts worldwide. It demonstrates that the greening of economies is not generally a drag on growth but rather a new engine of growth; that it is a net generator of decent jobs, and that it is also a vital strategy for the elimination of persistent poverty. The report also seeks to motivate policy makers to create the enabling conditions for increased investments in a transition to a green economy.
