Green Economy: The New Big Deal - Our Planet February 2009
United Nations Environment Programme

Globalisation does not just spread economic ups — and the current deep downs — rapidly across the globe. It can do the same for compelling and transformational ideas. As ministers gather in Nairobi for the Governing Council, two concepts being developed by UNEP are emerging as a powerful antidote to the economic gloom: the ‘Global Green New Deal’ and a transition to a global Green Economy. Together, they o er a way of overcoming short-term economic woes while setting the stage for sustainable growth in the 21st century, with markets rewarding nations and companies that invest in decent employment, innovation, resource e ciency and creativity.

Our Planet: agriculture and economic development
United Nations Environment Programme

This is the United Nations Environment Programme's flagship magazine. By one measure at least, agriculture ranks as one of the extraordinary success stories of the past decades. Roughly one quarter of the Earth’s terrestrial surface is now under cultivation with more land converted to crop production in the 30 years after 1950 than in the previous 150. In many regions - including Europe, North America, Australia and recently Brazil, China and India – humanity has also become adept at raising yields through using inputs like fertilizers and pesticides. Yet in many poorer countries with low productivity rates and growing populations, agriculture continues to expand into marginal and fragile lands. In much of sub-Saharan Africa and large parts of Asia – according to estimates compiled by the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) – almost no highly productive land is left.
