Global Meeting 2019 Policy Briefings

Gm2019 Cape Town Meeting 4

These four policy position papers were produced for our 2019 Global Meeting in Cape Town, South Africa. They cover the topics of Finance, Inclusion, Small & Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), and Natural Capital, and provide a detailed analysis of the context, challenges and opportunities for green economic policy in these respective areas.

In addition to mapping how green economy policies are already starting to have an impact in these four areas, the briefings explore how new initiatives might be shaped by bottom-up demand and citizen participation. They were used as the basis for discussions during the various policy sessions at the Global Meeting, and after incorporating responses and feedback from the delegate discussions during the event, the papers were submitted to the UN Partnership for Action on Green Economy Ministerial event, in January 2019.
