What is the Green Economy?
Why is it important?
What are we doing?
IndyACT has developed a green economy vision for Lebanon; “the 100% Lebanon Green Recovery Vision” document, providing an overall framework on how Lebanon can harness all the potential socioeconomic benefits, while still achieving the goals of the SDGs, the Paris Climate Agreement, the Convention of Biological Diversity and few other international and national commitments. This vision aligns economic growth with environmental and social benefits, makes the case that the green economy concept is the best and fastest approach to achieve sustainable development in Lebanon.
The developed document is aimed to initiate a national debate unifying all Lebanese under a common vision for the future. It sums up the uniqueness of Lebanon, being a land of diversity (at all levels; culture, geography, natural resources, etc.) and outlines a strategy for six vital sectors (energy, transport, agriculture, tourism, circular economy and sustainable finance).
