Environment in emerging and transition economies

EaP GREEN: Greening economies in the European Union’s Eastern Partnership countries


Русская версия

The "Greening Economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood” (EaP GREEN) programme is being implemented by OECD in cooperation with UNECE, UNEP, and UNIDO to assist the European Union’s Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries in their transition to green economies. The programme is financed by the European Commission, the four implementing organisations and other donors.
The programme responds to commitments made by countries, the European Union and international partners in several international forums: the Warsaw Eastern Partnership Summit, the Seventh “Environment for Europe” Ministerial Conference, and the Rio+20 Summit. Read more.

EaP GREEN is in the process of setting up a distinct website to display information and updates from all implementing partners. Key feature of the site will include a searchable documents library, a description of current and upcoming activities by country and by topic, and links to other programmes of environmental focus in the region. The new website will be launched as of 2 March 2015 under the link:
www.green-economies-eap.org  (currently a demo version is online)

We are also contributing to the European Commission's capacity4development platform and its public group on "Environment in the EU's Eastern neighbours": http://capacity4dev.ec.europa.eu/env-east/
