1 December, 2017 - Brussels, Belgium. The “Greening Economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood” (EaP GREEN) project, launched in 2013 and funded by the European Union, has been an important means to support the six EaP countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine) to progress faster towards a green economy through better management of natural capital in a context of higher economic productivity and competitiveness. Its outcomes show significant progress made in the EaP countries and on the regional level. 

The Conference aimed to:

  • take stock of key results and impacts of the EaP GREEN in the six EaP countries since its launch in 2013;
  • highlight good examples, lessons learned and summarise remaining challenges;
  • consider how the EaP countries and its partners can reinforce efforts to green their economies for an improved human well-being and social equity, with reduced environmental risks and ecological scarcities.

The Conference brought together high level government officials from the EaP and the EU countries, the EaP GREEN National Focal Points from the Ministries of Environment and of Economy, other officials and experts from EaP countries involved in specific EaP GREEN activities, as well as representatives of the European Commission, four implementing organisations (OECD, UNECE, UN Environment, and UNIDO) and other international organisations, private sector and NGOs community.

The conference was co-organized by the European Commission and four EaP GREEN implementing partners (OECD, UNECE, UN environment and UNIDO) and is financed by the EU “Greening Economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood” (EaP GREEN) Project.
