Regional State of the Coast Report: Western Indian Ocean
United Nations Environment Programme, Nairobi Convention Secretariat

The Regional State of Coast Report for the western Indian Ocean (WIO) is the first comprehensive regional synthesis to provide insights into the enormous economic potential around the WIO, the consequential demand for marine ecosystem goods and services to match the increasing human population, the pace and scale of environmental changes taking place in the region and the opportunities to avoid serious degradation in one of the world’s unique and highly biodiverse oceans. The report goes a step further and presents exploratory scenarios and policy analysis to better inform anticipatory planning and management of coastal and marine resources. Thirty years after the Nairobi Convention was enacted, there is no better way to mark this major milestone than launching this report in 2015 - a report which amongst others, will provide the Convention with the basis for reflection on where it is coming from and where it would wish to be in another thirty years from now. This report highlights the enormous economic potential and development needs of countries around the WIO and, at the same time, points out the growing natural and anthropogenic pressure imposed on the region coastal and marine environment, and the opportunities to avoid them.

United Nations Environment Programme

This summary paper explores the state of green investment in Kenya, and the role of the financial sector and potential financial policy innovations that could increase the flow of domestic green investment.

The IFC, as the largest global development institution focused exclusively on the private sector in developing countries, has been utilizing its investment and advisory services to develop local financial markets and leverage the private sector to advance innovative and viable solutions to ensure environmental and social sustainability. The UNEP Inquiry was set up to advance policy options to deliver a step change in the global financial system’s effectiveness in mobilizing capital towards a green and inclusive economy, through including producing country specific policy reports

Design Options for a Sustainable Financial Sector
United Nations Environment Programme

Over 200 years ago, Adam Smith put forward the notion that individuals seeking to benefit themselves through trade were led as if by an invisible hand to a situation in which society as a whole could benefit. It can be argued, however, that social objectives such as sustainability, and inclusiveness, do not emerge spontaneously through market forces. Such outcomes have to be designed through legal structures and institutions. In other words, for the invisible hand to operate, there needs to be a visible hand behind it. The financial inclusion experiment in South Africa provides lessons for the design of the type of financial sector required for the transition from greed to green. "
