2) Publications of policy briefs on “Forest in a Green Economy” and “Why Green Economy matters to the Least Developed Countries”
3) UN-wide engagement in green economy was actively promoted through joint publications, joint events and contributions resulting in a vast number of green economy activities now being promoted by other UN agencies, IGs and NGOs.
4) National scoping studies to encourage a transition to a green economy have been initiated.
5) In four countries follow up projects have been initiated that further explore the application of specific strategies and measures, and or sectorial approaches.
