Collaboration is embedded within the PAGE identity. Relying on shared expertise, dialogue and alignment of efforts strengthens the partnership’s effectiveness and enables synergy on the country and global level. This work with partners was a key ingredient in bringing together a comprehensive and coordinated COVID-19 response, adaptive work planning and strategic economic advice.
Collaborating partners include: the NDC Partnership; GoForSDGs; UNEP-UNDP Poverty-Environment Action for Sustainable Development Goals (PEA); SWITCH Africa Green and SWITCH-Asia; UN-REDD; One Planet Network; Biodiversity Finance Initiative (BIOFIN); the UNDP Green Commodities Programme; Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI); Green Economy Coalition (GEC); Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP); the UNEP Environment and Trade Hub; UNEP Finance Initiative (UNEP FI); SEED; and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) among others.
Together with SEED
PAGE and SEED (a global partnership for sustainable development enterprise support) have worked together to amplify the impact of green enterprises — particularly for a green and inclusive economic recovery from COVID-19 and a greener economy beyond the crisis. In 2021, PAGE contributed to SEED’s regional Policy and Finance Practitioners Labs with PAGE Thailand participating in the 2021 Hack for Climate Finance in Bangkok. PAGE was also consulted in the development of the SEED Green Recovery Snapshot report Eco-Inclusive Enterprises Driving Green Recovery Pathways, which draws attention to the potential triple returns of prioritizing green and social enterprises in the short and long term.
Green Economy Coalition & the Partners for Inclusive Green Economy
PAGE participated in regular meetings of the global inter-institutional group the Partners for Inclusive Green Economy — exchanging ideas with the GEC, GGKP, UNEP-UNDP PEA, the OECD, GGGI, the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED) and GIZ. The partners developed a joint paper on ‘Setting a structural agenda for a green economic recovery from COVID 19’, and presented a first outline at the OECD Forum on Green Growth in November. PAGE also contributed to a session on green recovery and public sector finance co-organized by the GEC as part of the OECD-UNEP Nature for Life hub in October 2021 and the GEC Global Meeting in December 2021 ‘Code Red for Nature and People’, which served as a collaborative space for diverse global networks to share solutions and drive action on green recovery, inclusion and nature.
Supporting the GGKP
PAGE has continued to support the Green Growth Knowledge Partnership (GGKP) in its work as a global community of organizations and experts committed to collaboratively generating, managing and sharing green growth knowledge. In 2021, this included the official public launch of the Green Forum, an online interactive community space for professionals to share and discuss insights on a sustainable economic transition, at the Fifth Session of the UN Environment Assembly. With a user-centric approach, the forum provides members with a space to create and manage their own public or private groups to support collaboration and promote inclusive green economy policies, practices and actions at the local, national, regional and global levels.
South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC) offers an opportunity for countries to exchange knowledge, to learn from one another and employ evidence-based solutions that work within, and informed by, local context.
With 20 partner countries and eight funding partners engaged at different stages of a green economy transformation, PAGE provides an ideal platform for SSTC.
