Partnership for Action on Green Economy

The Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) welcomed Rwanda and Cambodia as new partner countries and celebrated the successes of others after several years of joint action on green economic transformation. As national economies were tested in 2022 through renewed shocks to supply chains and food and energy systems – just after overcoming COVID-19 slowdowns – the call for building resilient, green and inclusive economies has been more urgent than ever. PAGE, an alliance of five UN agencies, 22 countries and eight funding partners championing green economies, enhanced collective reflection and action across its multiple global and national networks, informing global debates, catalysing change through UN Resident Coordinator Offices (UNRCOs), and improving analysis through its Global Recovery Observatory.

  • Inputs to Indonesia’s G20 Presidency, the Stockholm+50 Conference, UNFCCC COP27, and the World Circular Economy Forum put green and just economic transition high on the agenda in global debates with mention in the G20 Bali Leaders Declaration.

  • UNRCOs benefitted from training on green economic modelling and dialogues reflecting on priorities for a green economic transition, in addition to targeted economic expertise provided to countries through the Green Transformation Economic Advisory Mechanism (Green TEAM).

  • Since PAGE’s inception, 26,000 learners completed courses of PAGE’s e-learning portfolio contributing to improved knowledge on inclusive green economy. A Green Industry Summer School provided deep-dive learning for key actors in industry on circular economy, green recovery for SMEs, decarbonization and green jobs.

  • The Green Recovery Observatory helped to showcase policy solutions and green investments providing the basis for a Sustainable Budgeting Approach. Focused on the impact of COVID-19 on Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, additional guidance was developed on how to recover from exogenous shocks and increase resilience.

  • PAGE countries announced new policy measures to reduce carbon emissions, facilitate green finance and sustainable public procurement, promote green industry, and protect natural resources. Capacity building and social dialogue advanced sectoral reforms related to agriculture, energy, infrastructure, textiles, and tourism, with green jobs and circular economy being prevailing areas of action across countries.

                In 2022, PAGE worked with partner countries to create lasting change embedded in national policies and institutions. Integrated and holistic support enables countries to reduce poverty, increase jobs and social equity, and strengthen livelihoods and environmental stewardship while sustaining economic growth.

                PAGE works with partner countries to transform their economies in line with the SDGs, working across sectors and seeking to integrate policies and strategies that will enable them to achieve multiple targets through an Inclusive Green Economy approach.
