Transitioning to a Green Economy

Political Economy of Approaches in Small States

Edited by: Anna Halton, Nadine Smith, Janet Strachan

While the term 'green economy' has been widely used at the international level, very little information exists about what the concept looks like in practice. What are the policies required? What are the challenges of implementation at national level?This book contains case studies from eight small states that have committed publicly to greening their economies: Botswana, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Mauritius, Nauru, Samoa and Seychelles. It provides insights into the success of various initiatives and highlights how small states themselves are making practical progress on a green economy approach.
