In 2015, global leaders made a stand against poverty, environmental degradation and inequality. The signing of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Agreement to tackle climate change represent a new global consensus on sustainable development. 

Green economy approaches is a huge opportunity for powering the new global consensus. Yet, research shows that few green economy national plans make little or no reference to poor or marginalised people. 

The top findings: 

  1. There is limited participation by the poorest and most marginalised in the design and implementation of green economy plans and processes. 
  2. The poorest and most marginalised groups are not specifically targeted in terms of reducing poverty and inequality.
  3. Green economy plans do not comprehensively recognise the limits to growth nor address the low carbon transition with the urgency it requires.
