UNCTAD’s technical assistance activities to advance a green economy
Call for expressions of interest: Through 31 October 2013 UNCTAD invites interested governments to submit ‘Expressions of Interest’ to undertake a National Green Export Review. See attached brief below for further information.
National Green Export Reviews (NGERs) are UNCTAD's response to emerging country demand for assessments of national potential to advance the development of national green sectors to generate new employment and export opportunities while promoting sustainable development. Through NGERs, UNCTAD will work in a close partnership with countries seeking to strengthen their green economies.
Specifically, through an interactive national stakeholder process, NGERs will assist developing countries and countries with economies in transition to design and implement green economy policies and to establish regulatory and institutional frameworks, as well as cooperative G2B and B2B mechanisms, to strengthen the capacity, efficiency and competitiveness of their green sectors.
Analytically identifying national export strengths in particular green goods and services using UNCTAD's green product space methodology and stakeholder inputs, and assessing national trade and trade-related policies, are central elements of an NGER.
NGERs are demand-driven. The first step in any NGER project involves an official request from a government to undertake a project. UNCTAD will then work with a designated national ministry to launch the project.
