The Arab region still lags behind in the development of green technology and more efforts are still needed. Stable policy and regulatory frameworks attract investors and enable a faster and more efficient transition towards green technology adoption.  The effective implementation of these economic and financial policies requires strong political will, available and reliable data for evidence-based policy-making, monitoring and evaluation mechanisms, as well as the trust of all involved actors. Moving towards a sustainable and green economy through the adoption of green technologies requires investment not only from the government but also from the private sector.
