2022 Global Status Report for Buildings and Construction
The Global Status Report for Buildings and Construction (Buildings-GSR) is a flagship publication of the UNEP-hosted Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GlobalABC). The Buildings-GSR provides an annual snapshot of the progress of the buildings and construction sector on a global scale and reviews the status of policies, finance, technologies, and solutions to monitor whether the sector is aligned with the Paris Agreement goals. It also provides stakeholders with evidence to persuade policymakers and the overall buildings and construction community to take action.

Global and Regional Roadmaps for Buildings and Construction
The Global Roadmap for Buildings and Construction helps set pathways to decarbonization of the buildings and construction sector by 2050. Developed as a framework and a process, they present a comprehensive approach to emission reductions from the built environment along the full life cycle, with aspirational short and medium term and longer-term targets and timelines towards achieving zero-emission, efficient and resilient buildings and construction between 2020 and 2050. This document builds on the 2016 Global Roadmap towards Low-GHG and Resilient Buildings.
Below, you can download all three Regional Roadmaps: Africa, Asia and Latin America.
Mapping of Certified Green Building and Initiatives in Africa
The map identifies projects registered or accredited under non‐African and African energy labels. Green building certification projects across Africa are under blue labels, and initiatives relating to construction materials are under orange labels.
This mapping work was undertaken under the 2022 Buildings-GSR. The authors of the first sourcing are Insaf Ben Othmane Hamrouni, Omar Wanas, and Eng. Ibtissem Bouattay. If you are keen to contribute information on green certification projects and initiatives relating to construction materials in Africa, please reach out to the GlobalABC Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
