The Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) was established in 2013 to support countries addressing one of the greatest challenges of our time; building economies that improve human well-being and social equity, while significantly reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities. Many countries are up for this challenge, acknowledging that the growth model of the last century has resulted in significant environmental degradation and increasing social inequality. PAGE provides countries with assistance in planning and implementing their transition to a greener and more inclusive economic model.
While great uncertainty continued globally in 2021, the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) remained focused on supporting inclusive, green recoveries — and transforming economies that center on a sustainable and prosperous future for all. While targeted green recovery work began across PAGE partner countries, PAGE also strengthened its efforts to collaborate for a joint delivery on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and climate and biodiversity goals on the global level.
The PAGE 2020 Annual Report highlights our ongoing work in supporting inclusive, green economy transitions within 20 partner countries. In 2020, this work was highly adaptive, aligning with national priorities to support action plans for green economic recoveries and address the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19.
PAGE is proud to present it’s 2019 Annual Report, showcasing the efforts between 5 United Nations agencies, 8 funding partners and 20 partner countries, all working toward inclusive and sustainable green economies.
PAGE is proud to present the 2018 Annual Report, which showcases the commitment to inclusive green economy across the Partnership. The following pages present the progress and achievements made by PAGE partner countries in 2018, as well as PAGE impact at the global level.
The progress made in 2017 has demonstrated once again that our joint efforts allow us to deliver more than the sum of our individual organizations’ contributions. Uruguay and Guyana join the partnership and our partner countries committed more on sustainable development and climate action. PAGE ministerial conference was held successfully in Berlin and global e-learning courses attracted and trained civil servents and stakeholders.
2016 was a year of growth for PAGE. Not only did we welcome three new countries into the PAGE family, Barbados, Brazil (Mato Grosso State), and Kyrgyz Republic, we also expanded our networks, offering more opportunities for collaborating, sharing knowledge and resources and coordinating with other organizations, governments, civil society actors and green economy champions.
2015 changed the landscape of the sustainability agenda. Sustainability has become a universal, measurable, common undertaking, and the sign posts from here to 2030 are now well placed. For PAGE, 2015 was an important year, including alignment with the international sustainability agenda, a growing number of country and action partners, and the upscaling of country activities and global engagement.
For PAGE, 2014 was an important year. The partnership grew and country work began in earnest. The year marked the inclusion of UNDP as a new partner, the upscaling of country activities, and increased visibility in the international community. During 2014, four countries joined PAGE: Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mauritius and Senegal. Mongolia and Peru were the first two PAGE countries, where activities started in 2013.
