As of 2023, the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) has supported over 100 policies since its launch. That is the result of years of determined, persistent and joint efforts to reframe economic policies and practices by putting social, economic and ecological sustainability at the heart of policymaking – efforts sought to last far beyond the PAGE project cycle.
The PAGE 2022 Annual Report, launched on 2 March, presents highlights from its global work and country- and sector-specific milestones achieved in 2022. The report also welcomes the newest members of the PAGE family, Cambodia and Rwanda.
“We are humble to have supported over 100 policies, in partner countries, covering almost all aspects of the green economic transformation, ranging from finance to energy transition, to employment, industrial policies and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), et cetera”, said Asad Naqvi, Head of the PAGE Secretariat, when announcing the milestone last week. To inform these 100+ policies with solid economics and science, PAGE developed 196 assessments and worked with 299 ministries and institutions in 22 countries. Some most recent examples of such policies include:
- PAGE Kazakhstan, together with the Economic Research Institute, finalised a Carbon Neutrality Strategy until 2060.
- PAGE Uruguay supported the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Mining in designing and validating the National Strategy for Circular Economy.
- PAGE Peru approved a National Competitiveness and Productivity Policy, including a chapter on sustainability.
- PAGE Mauritius has directly supported the drafting of the Marshall Plan Against Poverty and Exclusion, addressing social inclusion as a vital part of an inclusive green economy.
- PAGE Argentina, with the International Labour Organization (ILO) in the lead, has worked closely with the Ministry of Labour in Argentina in supporting green jobs and accelerating a just transition through the Roadmap towards a National Green Jobs Promotion.
