World Green Economy Organisation

What is the project about?

UNDP works towards strengthening the capacity of WGEO

The Government of Dubai and UNDP have jointly designed and launched a new World Green Economy Organization (WGEO) to be based in Dubai and to be fully funded during its initial operation phase (2016-2018) by the Dubai Government. The WGEO would pioneer a new way of promoting the green economy by bringing together governments, the private sector, foundations, UN system, the banking system and civil society, working together to achieve green economy goals.

WGEO, when fully operational in 2019, would serve as a mechanism for generating new solutions to climate change, sustainable energy, water and other environmental challenges in developing countries, and supporting international cooperation between Dubai and developing countries in areas of innovation, technology and finance.
