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.
