Background

 

In 2015, South Africa joined the global programme, Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) to strengthen the cooperation, coordination and capabilities required to implement the country’s transition to a low-carbon, resource-efficient and pro-employment development path.

PAGE is a UN-programme which brings together the expertise of five agencies – United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), to support countries and regions to put sustainability at the heart of economic policies and practices to advance the 2030 Agenda.

Objectives

 

PAGE has three main objectives in South Africa. The first is to contribute to better policy coordination, strengthen dialogue and help deepen collaboration in green economy policy, planning and implementation processes.

The second is to identify potential and enabling factors for selected green economy sectors and/or industrial segments with the intent of promoting sector reform. The third objective relates to strengthening capabilities through enhanced green economy training, learning and knowledge sharing, including support for national learning institutions in South Africa.

The Department of Environmental Affairs is the PAGE coordinating ministry, while the PAGE lead agency in South Africa is the ILO.
