Global green new deal: an update for the G20 Pittsburgh Summit

United Nations Environment Programme (2009)

This report summarizes the key points of the March 2009 UNEP GGND policy brief and encourages participating governments to renew their pledge to a Global Green New Deal. It highlights the progress in both green elements of fiscal stimulus packages, including the pace of disbursement, and domestic policy reforms in seven G20 countries: China, France, Germany, United States, Mexico, Republic of Korea, and South Africa. The final part of the report suggests much more can be done and urges governments to continue to work towards building a green economy and ends with an appendix of Green Stimulus Rankings per Capita as of August 2009.
