Official launch of UN-PAGE programme in Guatemala

In January 2022, the PAGE programme was officially launched in Guatemala by the Vice Minister of Finance, in the presence of the UN Resident Coordinator and high-level representatives from line ministries, including those of the Environment and Economy. More than 150 participants from government, the private sector, civil society, local media, academia, and the UN community attended the virtual event.

The main objectives of PAGE in Guatemala include improving environmental management through the design and roll-out of green fiscal policies as well as achieving a Just Transition that leaves no one behind.

Saúl Figueroa, Vice minister of Public Finance, expressed that PAGE will enable the formulation of sustainable economic policies and practices that promote green development, reduce inequality, and generate income and jobs while helping to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.

The UN-PAGE workstreams will support the Government in meeting its national and international commitments, such as the Sustainable Development Goals and the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC).
