Supporting a creative green economy 

A creative green economy is a key to delivering Nepal’s climate and development agenda. To achieve its COP26 goals to reach a net zero carbon economy by 2045, Nepal needs to invest in low carbon and resource-efficient businesses. It will need to invest in projects that foster inclusivity to ensure far-reaching resilience and ongoing sustainability in the market. The creative green economy can harness the potential of creative industries, working with nature-based solutions and low carbon ambitions of the green economy.
