Green Production Sectors
The project on "Strengthening national capacities in the ESCWA region on developing green production sectors" was designed and launched by ESCWA in 2012, during the preparatory period leading to Rio+20, to promote practical green economy approaches in the ESCWA member countries.
The project follows a three-step strategy involving:
- Awareness raising of green economy concepts and applications;
- Mapping existing policies and identifying gaps; and
- Building capacity and technical skills in green production policies.
A major component of the project involves the establishment of Green Help Desks in selected countries with support from national partners in order operationalize green economy concepts and involve the private sector. Regional and international partners collaborate with ESCWA in support of regional and inter-regional exchange of experiences and best practices.
