On the World Environment Day, United Nations Stresses the Need for Green Economy
The World Environment Day (WED) is being observed today with the theme 'Green Economy: Does it include you?' According to United Nations, green economy is an environment-friendly economy that results in improved human well-being and social equity.

WORLD ENVIRONMENT Day (WED) is being observed today with a focus on reducing environmental risks and ecological scarcities as decided by the UN. "In its simplest expression, a green economy can be thought of as one which is low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive," UN said in its message on the occasion of WED-2012.

As officially stated by the UN, Green Economy (GE) is the one that stresses on the 'growth in income and employment, driven by public and private investments to reduce carbon emissions and pollution, enhance energy and resource efficiency, and prevent the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services.'

On the occasion of WED this year, the UN has urged the community of nations to support the GE through the targeted public expenditure, policy reforms and regulation changes.

Also, the UN has urged the individuals to put pressure on their governments for social equity and inclusiveness through adoption of the GE policies and practices.
