The 2019 Asia-Pacific Regional High-Level Forum on Green Economy

Set to Scale up the Impact of Successful Evidence-Based Green Economy Solutions in the Region

The 2019 Asia-Pacific Regional High-Level Forum on Green Economy taking place during 10-12 June 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand, is the result of the success of the annual, since 2014, World Green Economy Summit model and a direct response to the requests of participating countries and institutional partners to bring green economy solutions closer to the regional contexts and to deepen the impact of transition to a green economy through scaling up and replication of successful practices at the regional level. The Forum will promote successful evidence-based green economy solutions that meet the needs of countries in the region in implementing the UN Sustainable Development Agenda 2030.

The 2019 Asia-Pacific Regional High-Level Forum on Green Economy is organized by the World Green Economy Organization in close cooperation with the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation and the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, as well as in partnership with a number of key stakeholders, including United Nations Climate Change, The Asia Foundation, and the International Solar Alliance. The Forum will bring together high-level government officials, representatives of international organizations, including IFIs, foundations, as well as relevant private sector players and civil society actors from around Asia-Pacific and beyond.

The 2019 Asia-Pacific Regional High-Level Forum on Green Economy is designed as an extension to the annual World Green Economy Summit. It aims to raise regional awareness by showcasing and scaling up, including through South-South and Triangular Cooperation, the impact of successful evidence-based green economy solutions crafted and tested by countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The three thematic focus areas of the 2019 Asia-Pacific Regional High-Level Forum on Green Economy are improving regulatory and policy frameworks for a green economy, promoting innovative green investment through public-private partnerships, and advancing national-level capacity development for a holistic green action.
