The 2019 Africa Regional Ministerial Conference on Green Economy, is a result of the success of the annual, since 2014, World Green Economy Summit model and a direct response to the requests of participating countries and institutional partners (The World Green Economy Organization, The United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation, The World Food Programme, The United Nations Climate Change, The United Nations Development Programme, CSR Arabia and The International Solar Alliance) to bring green economy solutions closer to the regional contexts and to deepen the impact of transition to a green economy through scaling up and replication of successful practices at the regional level. World Green Economy Summit (WGES) is one of the leading annual global forums on green economy that brings together world-class experts to focus on advancing the global Green Economy agenda and the path towards the implementation of the UN Sustainable Development Agenda 2030.
The 2019 Africa Regional Ministerial Conference on Green Economy is organized by the World Green Economy Organization in close cooperation with the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation and in partnership with a number of key stakeholders and hosted by the Ministry of Environment of the Arab Republic of Egypt.
The Regional Ministerial Conference on Green Economy is designed as an extension to WGES aiming to raise regional awareness by showcasing and scaling up the impact of successful evidence-based green economy solutions crafted and tested by countries in the Africa Region in addressing sustainable development challenges pertinent to the needs and aspirations of the region. The three thematic focus areas of the 2019 Africa Regional Ministerial Conference on Green Economy are:
- Promoting innovative green investment through public-private partnerships,
- Improving regulatory and policy frameworks for a green economy, and
- Advancing national-level capacity development for a holistic green action.
The participants at the Regional Ministerial Conference on Green Economy will include four groups of champions and stakeholders: high-level policymakers, solution providers, solution seekers and those seeking to scale up solutions.
