Duties and Responsibilities

Background

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system. UNEP’s mission is to provide leadership and encourage partnership in caring for the environment. We aim to achieve this mission by inspiring, informing, and enabling nations and peoples to improve their quality of life without compromising that of future generations.

UNEP’s Economy Division supports partners across governments, private sector and civil society to develop and implement policies, strategies and practices for sustainable development. Located within the Economy Division, the Resources and Markets Branch enhances the capacity of partners to integrate environmental considerations into economic policies and practices. A particular focus of the Resources and Markets Branch is UNEP’s work related to Green Economy.

The Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) brings together expertise and guidance of five UN agencies (ILO, UNIDO, UNITAR, UNDP and UNEP) and eight funding partner countries to assist eighteen countries in their sustainable development. UNEP is providing secretariat services to this multi-year interagency programme. PAGE is currently supporting Mongolia, Peru, Senegal, Burkina Faso, Mauritius, Ghana, South Africa, Brazil, China, Kyrgyz Republic, Barbados, Guyana, Uruguay, India, Indonesia, Guatemala, Argentina, Kazakhstan, Thailand and Morocco in addition to a portfolio of global activities, including training programmes, knowledge sharing, and outreach and communication. Following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Partnership is directing is work towards assisting countries in a green economic recovery.

The Partnership, led by PAGE Secretariat, is developing its annual report for the year 2020, building on the successful release of its online annual reports in the past four years. The publication looks back at the results of PAGE’s activities in its partner countries. Presenting results in an online format helps PAGE more innovatively communicate its mission and achievements, as requested by funding partners. The interactive report will be used as a communication tool from the beginning of 2021 and feed into different outreach activities and events in the first quarter of 2021.

UNEP/PAGE Secretariat does not currently hold expertise for developing online tools in-house and needs to seek for external assistance.

This activity contributes to Outcome 4 (global outreach and knowledge sharing) of the PAGE Programme, and specifically Output 2 on global advocacy on inclusive green economy, outreach and communications.
