EaP Green, an environment-oriented organisation within the EU, commissioned this animation for use in live presentations. The animation gives a general overview of the context, objectives and achievements in a quest for a greener economy. This specific programme, titled “Greening Economies in the European Union’s Eastern Neighbourhood” focuses on six EU partnership countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
Internationally, commitments to green economy were spelled out most prominently at the “Rio+20” Earth Summit. In a regional perspective, similar engagements were made through the Declaration of the 2011 Warsaw “Eastern Partnership” Summit.
At the Vilnius Summit in 2013, participants from the European Union (EU) and the Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine) acknowledged the mutual benefits of working together towards a green economy. The EaP GREEN programme responds to these efforts by supporting the EaP countries in developing effective national approaches to green growth which aim to foster economic growth and development while ensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which society’s well-being depends.
The animated explainer video was produced by Zoï Environment Network.
