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.

The Partnership, led by PAGE Secretariat, is developing its annual report for the year 2021, building on the successful release of its online annual reports in the past five years.

The interactive report will be used as a communication tool from the beginning of 2022 and feed into different outreach activities and events in 2022.
