This tool-box guides policymakers and green economy professionals on policy options at the intersection of green industrial policy and trade. As such, the tool-box provides an overview of the trade-related green industrial policy instruments available and clarifies their structure and operation, while outlining their implications with regard to trade policy. The tools are embedded in an overall methodology consistent with the UNIDO Practitioner’s Guide to Strategic Green Industrial Policy. Policy tools discussed in this tool-box
The report ‘Green industrial policy’ addresses policymakers, advisors, researchers and practitioners and makes a case for accelerating structural change toward a green economy, in developing and developed countries alike. To do so, it:
The Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme submits to the United Nations Environment Assembly of the United Nations Environment Programme a report entitled “ Towards a pollution - free planet ” , which describes the challenges posed by global pollution, outlines current efforts to address pollution and suggests 50 actions to tackle the problem.
The African Elephant Fund, which is a partnership venture between the United Nations Environment Programme, the Secretariat of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, donor States and range States, have been working together to curtail the growing threats to elephant populations. Efforts to meet this objective have been stepped up since the adoption of the Action Plan in 2010.
Pollution today is pervasive and persistent. While the world has achieved significant economic growth over the past few decades, it has been accompanied by large amounts of pollution, with significant impacts on human health and ecosystems and the ways in which some of the major Earth system processes, such as the climate, are functioning. This report describes the pollution challenge, explores what is already being done to address pollution, and proposes 50 focused and actionable interventions to address pollution in all its forms.
The Paris Agreement, adopted in 2015, established the global goal on adaptation of enhancing adaptive capacity, strengthening resilience and reducing vulnerability to climate change, with a view to contributing to sustainable development and ensuring an adequate adaptation response in the context of the temperature goal.
Even if the pledges in the Paris Agreement on Climate Change are implemented, we will still not reduce greenhouse gas emissions enough to meet the goals. The UN Environment Emissions Gap Report 2017 states that for the 2°C goal, this shortfall could be 11 to 13.5 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent. For the 1.5°C goal, it could be as much as 16 to 19 gigatonnes. We urgently need more ambitious action to close these gaps. So, this latest 1 Gigaton Coalition Report helps to focus those efforts by quantifying the progress secured through renewable energy and energy efficiency.
