Thursday, June 13, 2019 – The 2019 Africa Regional Ministerial Conference on Green Economy taking place during 17-19 June 2019 in Cairo, Egypt, 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 Africa Regional Ministerial Conference on Green Economy, that is hosted by the Ministry of Environment of the Arab Republic of Egypt is organized by the World Green Economy Organization in close cooperation with the United Nations Office for South-South Cooperation, as well as in partnership with a number of key stakeholders, including World Food Programmed, United Nations Climate Change, UNDP, CSR Arabia, and the International Solar Alliance. The Conference 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 Africa and beyond.

The 2019 Africa Regional Ministerial Conference 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 Africa region. The three thematic focus areas of the 2019 Africa Regional Ministerial Conference 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.
