The Economic and Fiscal Policy Unit aims to provide technical analysis and assessment research support on a wide range of socio-economic and environmental issues, in order to aid the transition to inclusive and greener economies.
Countries are increasingly adopting the Inclusive Green Economy (IGE) approach and designing green economy strategies in line with their challenges and needs. The Unit's research supports policy-makers in identifying key areas and shifting policies and investments towards greener trajectories for environmental preservation, social protection, and equity.
The Unit’s flagship Green Economy Report demonstrates the potential of IGE as an engine for sustainable growth. The Unit has also coordinated the publication of Working Towards a Balanced, Inclusive Green Economy, a UN system-wide report that aims to facilitate a common understanding on IGE and the measures required to advance this transition.
