PAGE is the pioneer to support offices of UN Resident Coordinators around the world to deliver tailored support to countries, enable cross-fertilization, and leverage the UN System for green economic transformation. It has established new mechanisms that can mobilize the whole of the UN System at country level in support of a circular economy agenda.

Collaborating across the UN System — leveraging its collective knowledge — can accelerate green recovery and green economic transformation. The United Nations development system (UNDS) reforms provide an opportunity to harness the structures in place to improve cohesion across the system, build regional strategies, improve decision-making, and bolster the capacity of UN Country Teams. PAGE is actively engaged in greater coordination and is using this approach to reinforce support to partner countries and to further drive innovative and unified change.

Over the past years, PAGE has established close collaboration with a wide range of action partners at country and global level, aligning support for higher impact. Different alliances and forms of cooperation are possible, subject to each country situation, the sectors/themes it prioritizes for economic transformation and overall development goals.

PAGE promotes economic transformation through dialogue. This arm of our work further informs decision-making and looks to build deeper political will for the Inclusive Green Economy movement. PAGE engages across the UN system, and through the UN Resident Coordinator network, to leverage collective expertise in economic thinking, offering deeper policy advice to partners and contributing to a strengthened global understanding of green economy principles.

  • Green Transformation Economic Advisory Mechanism

    PAGE, in close coordination with the United Nations Economist Network (UNEN), established the Green Transformation Economic Advisory Mechanism (Green TEAM) in 2021 to provide deeper support on economics to partner countries.

    The Green TEAM consists of economists from five PAGE agencies, economists from UN Resident Coordinator Offices (RCOs), UN Regional Economic Commissions, and the Office of the UN Chief Economist. The Green TEAM advises and informs national economic and development planning as well as development of UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Frameworks (UNSDCFs).

    Within this framework, PAGE has also launched the Dialogue Series with Offices of UN Resident for peer-to-peer learning and exchange on knowledge and best practices on accelerating fair and green economic transformations.

  • The UN Economist Network

    Employing its expertise and experience in the field of green economic transformation, PAGE is contributing to the work of the UN Economist Network. The Network is comprised of ‎economists from the UN system, including country economists working in UN RCOs. ‎It provides, inter alia, research and policy analysis on key current and emerging economic, financial, social and environmental issues aiming to further the 2030 Agenda.

  • Informing the Global Agenda

    PAGE promotes dialogue and partnerships at the global level to promote economic transformation. This informs decision-making and builds deeper political will for climate aligned economic transformation.

    PAGE has a catalytic role, providing a starting point for other partners to sustain and further enable an economy wide transformation. PAGE provides analytical foundations and policy consensus, on which other programmes and initiatives of larger scope can build and roll-out more comprehensive and project-based support to countries providing deeper technical assistance.

    PAGE will drive and shape important global conversations to inspire a global shift towards inclusive green and circular economy policies and practices and develop necessary skills and capacity through Global Capacity Building and Global Knowledge Development and Sharing.

  • Strengthening collaboration with ESCAP

    PAGE is collaborating with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) on macroeconomic policy and sustainable finance in PAGE countries in the Asia region.

  • Support to G20 Indonesia Presidency

    To support developing countries with recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure resilience to withstand future crises, the Indonesian G20 Development Working Group (DWG) identified blue economy and green economy through low carbon development as part of its main priority areas.

  • Uniting Economic Expertise

    In close coordination with the economists from UN RCOs and PAGE agencies, the Green TEAM began offering additional country-level support in 2021 to mainstream sustainability considerations to UN and national strategic plans.

  • Accelerating a Fair and Green Economic Transformation

    In 2021, the Green TEAM start the dialogues series “One UN for Accelerating a Fair and Green Economic Transformation”, creating a platform for economists from PAGE agencies and RCOs in PAGE countries to exchange ideas and share knowledge and best practices on accelerating fair and green economic transformations.
