Duties and Responsibilities

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 the specialized expertise of five UN agencies – United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), International Labour Organisation (ILO), United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). The Partnership aims to accelerate a sustainability revolution and economic transformation, including through green recovery efforts. The Partnership offers a comprehensive, coordinated and cost-effective package of 1) economic and scientific analytical tools; 2) technical assistance for policy development, and 3) capacity-building services for policy implementation.

PAGE is developing an integrated publication of the Third Edition of the Green Economy Progress Measurement Framework (GEPMF) Application and green macroeconomic modelling. The Framework was first developed in 2017 and updated in 2021 to help policymakers evaluate their overall progress towards Inclusive Green Economy. There are two components to the Framework: the GEP Index (GEPI) and the Dashboard of Sustainability. The green macroeconomic modelling results are produced using selected results from the GEPI. Combined, the Third Edition will feature the state of the inclusive green economy transition in a Pre-Covid World (2014-2019), followed by a forecasting exercise – simulation of policy and investment scenarios through modelling to assess the social, economic and environmental impacts of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 while considering the multiple crises the world currently faces.
