The United Nations University Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA), in collaboration with SNV Ghana, is organizing a green business forum. The forum will bring together key policymakers, development partners, business and financial experts, and entrepreneurs, to discuss the potential for green businesses in Ghana, determine the challenges and explore interventions.
Date: 28th November, 2017
Theme: “Green Businesses in Ghana: Opportunities for Growth’’.
It is expected that the forum will provide a platform for policy makers and the private sector to dialogue on issues affecting green businesses and recommend interventions that will help promote the sector in Ghana. It will also provide an opportunity to engage entrepreneurs and to inform them on how to apply for GCIC support.
The Ghana Climate Innovation Center (GCIC) is an incubation hub that is providing financing, mentoring, training and business advisory services to support emerging entrepreneurs and new ventures involved in developing locally appropriate solutions to climate change mitigation and adaptation in Ghana. The project is being funded by a grant from the Governments of Denmark and the Netherlands through the World Bank. It is being implemented by Ashesi University, SNV, Enst &Young and UNU-INRA. UNU-INRA is leading the policy component of the project, which aims to help address the policy and regulatory challenges of the clean technology sector in Ghana.
