Executive Summary

Green development is the development concept that received universal attention from all countries around the world, as well as an integral part to realize UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. With the deepening and development of economic globalization, to realize green development it is necessary to enhance international cooperation and requires sharing of international experience.

Green development is the consensus reached by all BRI participating countries. The Joint Communique of Leaders’ Roundtable of the 2nd Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation (2nd BRF) was released in April 2019. Leaders from different countries reaffirmed their commitment to the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and that achieving strong, sustainable, balanced and inclusive growth and improving people’s quality of life were their common goals. They envisaged high-quality Belt and Road cooperation, which will be based on extensive consultation, joint efforts, shared and mutual benefits, will be open, green and clean, and will pursue high standard, people-centered and sustainable development. The leaders reiterated the importance of pursuing people-centered development and striking a good balance among economic growth, social progress and environmental protection.

Nonetheless, to realize green development is confronted with many challenges. On one hand, the environmental and climate discrepancy between BRI participating countries stamped  the implementation of green development concepts. The overall ecology and environment  is quite sensitive, yet some countries haven’t paid adequate attention to ecological and environmental protection. On the other hand, green development features comprehensive development in every aspect, including production, consumption, circulation, innovation and finance. Besides environmental awareness, it also needs coordinated development and improvement in environmental governance capacities and public awareness, institutional innovation and technological progress.

Focusing on green development practices from BRI participating countries, this report selected and shared cases on green development in pollution treatment, the management  and conservation of ecosystem, green energy, green production, green lifestyles and green finance by applying screening standards of compliance, effectiveness, recognition and replicability. Most of the cases were from cooperative projects as well as practices of BRI participating countries. These cases aim to showcase beneficial practices in the cooperative efforts within and between BRI participating countries as well as among stakeholders to further enhance green consensus, boost confidence in green development and spawn more down-to-earth practices for green development.
