from greenkampong.com: UNEP's Green Economy Report

The Report is compiled by UNEP’s Green Economy Initiative in collaboration with economists and experts worldwide.

The report also seeks to motivate policy makers to create the enabling conditions for increased investments in a transition to a green economy.
