The race for a green economy is now on and is gathering pace.
The GEC is committed to accelerating the transition to a green economy, and to ensuring that equity and inclusion are put at the very core of the transformation.
The GEC launched a new phase of work for the next three years at our 6th Global Strategy Meeting in Gland, Switzerland.
Some of the higlights from the meeting include:
- We have a renewed commitment for the GEC to move to Phase 3 in which we will continue to champion equity, inclusion and ecological limits; we will seek to engage a broader constituency base, particularly in the South as well as appropriate business and finance representatives; and we will target key economic decision makers at the local, national and global levels.
- We are tackling the big, relevant and timely issues through our core activities and five project themes of: measurement, finance, green sectors, equity, and managing natural capital;
- We are moving towards a network model, supported by the Secretariat, guided by the Steering Group, and funded by external sources.
