Assessing South American Green Economy

Policy solutions emerging from native ecosystems

Green economy, the theme of this new publication is defined as low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive, according to UN Environment. More specifically, it allows us to talk about economic sectors such as forestry, agriculture, mining, fishing, among others, while taking into account environmental factors, such as protecting water sources and biodiversity or reducing greenhouse gas emissions; support workers’ rights; and focus on specific parts of the production processes.

The objective of this study was to provide inputs to contribute to the green economy debate, focusing on the economic sustainability of its initiatives.
