The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the United Nations system’s designated entity for addressing environmental issues at the global and regional level. Its mandate is to coordinate the development of environmental policy consensus by keeping the global environment under review and bringing emerging issues to the attention of governments and the international community for action.

UNEP, in partnership with the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), serves as the joint host of the Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP) Secretariat ( on behalf of the GGKP Steering Committee (UNEP, UNIDO, GGGI, the OECD, and the World Bank). The GGKP is a global network of over 70 international organisations, research institutes, and think tanks focused on promoting a green economy transition by:

● identifying major knowledge gaps in green growth theory and practice and addressing these gaps by promoting collaboration and coordinated research; and

● using world-class knowledge management and communication tools to provide practitioners, policymakers, and other experts with opportunities to access, share, and utilize green growth policy analysis, guidance, information, and data.
