Why a green economy matters for the least Developed Countries

The report includes examples of achievements in a range of economic sectors, including energy and agriculture, and through government, private sector and civil society initiatives. The examples include: Uganda’s experience in quadrupling exports of organic agricultural products between 2003 and 2008, tapping into a growing global market and ensuring higher prices for products; Nepal's approach to Community Forest Management, which has succeeded in reversing the trend of decline in forest cover and continues to generate employment and income from the sustainable harvesting of timber and non-timber forest products; and Mali’s experience of supporting farmers through field training, significantly reducing the use of imported pesticides and expanding the use of organic fertilizers, simultaneously increasing production and reducing input costs.
