The Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) was launched in 2013 as a response to the call at Rio+20 to support those countries wishing to embark on greener and more inclusive growth trajectories.
PAGE seeks to put sustainability at the heart of economic policies and practices to advance the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and supports nations and regions in reframing economic policies and practices around sustainability to foster economic growth, create income and jobs, reduce poverty and inequality, and strengthen the ecological foundations of their economies. PAGE represents a mechanism to coordinate action on green economy and to assist countries in achieving and monitoring the emerging Sustainable Development Goals, especially SDG 8: “Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all.”
PAGE offers services that are tailored to the different starting points, needs and circumstances of partner countries, supporting each country to develop its own pathway to an inclusive green economy.
PAGE brings together the specialized expertise of five United Nations agencies and aims to accelerate a sustainability revolution. Managed by 5 UN agencies, PAGE is funded by 8 donors and implemented in 20 partner countries. The EU is one co-funder.
