dc.descriptionThis report, (April 2009) was commissioned by UNEP from Edward Barbier of the University of Wyoming to act as the back bone to the upcoming ‘Green Economy Report.’ This paper is an exploration of the potential benefits of a Global Green New Deal (GGND) as a way of combating the recession and also securing long term economic recovery. The report argues that the preservation and protection of our environment is crucial to long term economic stability and the fight to alleviate poverty. Any policies aimed at economic recovery must also take into account the environmental challenges we are faced with, such as climate change, pollution and habitat loss. Split into four parts, this publication is to act as a blue-print or first step in developing a GGND.
