Green economy and natural capital
Progress today cannot occur at the expense of future generations. This requires us to focus on much more sustainable forms of production and consumption.
UNDP’s approach emphasizes the critical links between environmental sustainability and efforts to eradicate poverty, reduce inequalities, and strengthen resilience. We do this by:
- Promoting the development of green products and value chains which could be scaled up and integrated into global value chains;
- Developing data that takes the environment into account;
- Promoting fiscal reform and alternative financing measures which can direct much-needed resources to environmental activities;
- Assisting policy-makers to integrate poverty and environmental issues into their development planning.
