Green economy policies, practices and initiatives
Green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication was one of the two themes for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). In June 2012 in Rio de Janeiro governments agreed to frame green economy as an important tool for achieving sustainable development. Governments agreed to general principles and priority areas which will guide implementation of the green economy at all levels as well as cooperation between all the Stakeholders.

The map/list of green economy policies provides a searchable, interactive global database of green economy policies and other initiatives that was developed as an information resource in the lead up to Rio+20. The various initiatives were collected either by Secretariat staff or uploaded directly into the database by member states, international organizations and major groups through the online form.
