PAGE 2022 Annual Report Highlight

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.

PAGE has supported over 100 policies in the past years thanks to its strong collaboration and partnership with almost 300 ministries and institutions.

During the past years, PAGE has deepened its support to advancing a just and inclusive green economic recovery in developing countries following the macroeconomic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Given the most recent challenges to food and energy supply chains, the combined expertise of five UN agencies and eight funding partners, united under auspices of PAGE, is needed more than ever.

PAGE, inter alia, facilitates peer to peer learning between countries on common challenges, best practices, and transformative policy reforms. This is facilitated through South-South-North exchange forums and PAGE Family Gatherings.

“The most recent PAGE Family Gathering, which discussed how to catalyse a circular economy transformation in a crisis-driven world, generated fruitful discussion and new ideas on how PAGE can respond to emerging crisis”, Asad Naqvi added.

Looking back at the 100+ green policies supported to date, the Partnership for Action on Green Economy looks forward to continuing its commitment to accelerating the shift to a socially inclusive and environmentally sustainable Green Transition in the following years to come.

The Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) has grown into a prominent alliance of five UN agencies, 8 funding partners, and 22 partner countries that work together to transform economies into drivers of sustainability by supporting nations and regions in reframing economic policies and practices around sustainability.

Thanks to this integrated vision and strategy and the support of its board and a wide range of partners, PAGE is increasingly recognized as a model to deliver coordinated support of UN to countries for achieving Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets of the Paris Agreement.
