Green Economy is a driver for SDGs achieving in Belarus

8 February 2021

The green growth mechanism is an effective tool for achieving sustainable development, especially in the context of climate change. Belarus signed the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, committing itself to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 28% of the 1990 level by 2030. Therefore, economic growth should be stimulated while reducing the use of natural resources and CO2 emissions at the same time.

One of the mechanisms for combating climate change is the green economy concept. Such economy is more competitive and innovative through the introduction of digital technologies, new jobs and other mechanisms of green transition to sustainable growth.
Currently the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection together with the Ministry of Economy of the Republic of Belarus and with expert support from the United Nations Development Program in the Republic of Belarus is developing a National Action Plan to develop a green economy for the period up to 2025. The priority areas of green economy in Belarus until 2025 will be electric transport and urban mobility, renewable energy, sustainable consumption and production, sustainable tourism, innovative green and digital technologies, green investments.
Information about the implementation of the National Action Plan for the Green Economy in the Republic of Belarus until 2020 was presented at the Council for Sustainable Development and is available here.
Final report on the implementation of the National Action Plan for the Green Economy Development in the Republic of Belarus until 2020 is also available.
