Based on the global Green Economy Coalition's (GEC) five-themed framing of the green economy the technical report Exploring Opportunities for Transformation to Inclusive, Sustainable and Resilient Economies in the Eastern Caribbean was developed for baselining the state of the Green Economy (GE) in partner countries, as defined within the narrow objectives of the EU GE dialogues project.
The Eastern Caribbean Green Economy Barometer 2018 provides a snapshot of the transition to an inclusive green economy. This report focuses on the varied greening experiences of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) members, the conception of GE that is beginning to emerge there, and the successes and failures of OECS members to implement GE-informed policies.
While the term ‘green economy’ has been widely used at the international level, very little information exists about what the concept looks like in practice. It remains to be explored what policies are required, and what the challenges of implementation at national level are.
