The present policy brief draws from an upcoming joint publication by the Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) and the United Nations Environment program (UNEP) entitled “Means of implementation for sustainable development in Africa: enabling measures for an inclusive green economy in Africa”. The brief outlines the role and significance of various enablers that could facilitate a smooth transition in Africa, taking into account the implications for the region, and highlights key messages that could inform the application of enabling measures in Africa for optimal policy impact. It concludes that the transition to a green economy will not happen automatically; and creating certain ‘enabling’ conditions will provide incentives for various stakeholders, including public and private actors, to invest in, and contribute to building an inclusive green economy.
