Helping governments go green

Environment and finance ministers and international organization representatives have pledged to strengthen partnerships for an inclusive green economy following a high-level event at Global Green Growth Week 2016 in Jeju, Republic of Korea.


The event brought together high-level government officials from over 50 countries, multi-lateral development banks, international development agencies and private-sector leaders.


It had the aim of identifying innovative solutions to sustainability challenges and strengthening partnerships that deliver pro-poor, inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth.


In Colombia, Mongolia, Peru and Senegal, the UN Environment Partnership for Action on Green Economy - through its offices based in Geneva - is together with the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) helping governments transition to a green economy by providing technical support, capacity building, knowledge and forging long-term partnerships.


"Environmental degradation threatens people's well-being in countless ways… a sustainable approach to development acknowledges that our environment underpins our long-term well-being. That's why UN Environment continues to support the Partnership for Action on Green Economy, which works closely with governments and the private sector in 11 countries to make their development plans inclusive and sustainable," said UN Environment Executive Director Erik Solheim.


"GGGI's partnership with the Partnership for Action on Green Economy adds the inclusive green growth dimension to a very successful multi-agency partnership," stressed Yvo de Boer, Director-General of the Global Green Growth Institute.


The meeting participants analysed how various expressions of inclusive green economy have gone into national and economic planning and policy processes and how this collaboration can be improved and scaled up.


One such example examined was that of Mongolia, where the Partnership for Action on Green Economy and the Global Green Growth Institute collaborate on measuring and financing green growth with a focus on indicators and greening public education buildings.


The country plans to reduce heat loss through buildings by 20 percent by 2020 and by 40 percent by 2030. Through the joint project, a green school building design has been developed which can be applied to the 1,200 schools that need to be built over the next 5-7 years.
