Green Economy Briefing Papers

Publication Year: 2012 Publisher: UNEP


Under its Green Economy Initiative, UNEP prepared a series of nine green economy briefing papers on priority issues for the transformation towards a green economy: poverty reduction; advisory services; health; indicators; trade; finance; employment; valuing nature; and innovation. Each brief provides an overview of the issue, the way forward, and outlines what UNEP is doing to address the issue.
