Guidelines for contributing to the UN Environment Fund
United Nations Environment Programme

The Environment Fund of UN Environment was established in 1973 by the General Assembly resolution A-2997(XXVII). The Fund is the core source of funding (in addition to the UN Regular Budget) that enables the organization to deliver on the multilaterally agreed medium term strategies and the programmes of work approved by the governments in an efficient, effective and balanced manner. The greatest return on investment in the Environment Fund is its ability to leverage results from each member state’s individual investment with pooled resources worth millions.

Green Economy: Briefing Paper: Trade
United Nations Environment Programme

Trade has the potential to drive a green economy by fostering the exchange of environmentally friendly goods and services, increasing resource efficiency, generating economic opportunities and employment, and contributing to poverty eradication. If managed poorly, however, unrestrained trade can contribute to environmental degradation, unsustainable resource use, and increased wealth disparities, all of which hinder a green economy transition and sustainable development objectives.
