Professor Robert Costanza joined the PAGE Family in 2023 with the objective to lead the development and delivery of a series of virtual and face-to-face New Frontier dialogues as well as written media pieces.
He led the recent PAGE New Frontiers Dialogue series in collaboration with UNITAR. The dialogues took place online between 20 June and 10 July across Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Themes such as building resilience to shocks, driving circularity and technological innovation through targeted policy, deepening collaboration with international finance institutions and reinforcing the energy transition were identified as key levers for a green economy transition. The dialogues involved the PAGE community, funding partners, government representatives, Resident Coordinators and RCO Economists.
Professor Costanza is currently writing a brief on the New Frontiers Regional Dialogues. In the meantime, he agreed to comment in an interview with PAGE the insights gathered from the discussions.
