Excerpt from Daily Graphic
Policy makers and researchers in Africa are meeting in Accra at a five-day regional forum and training workshop to build their capacity in understanding the role of business in the transition of rural Africa to a green economy. The forum is also to give the participants the ability to promote the creation, development and growth of green and resource efficient enterprises in the region.
The regional forum on “Greening industries and green entrepreneurship promotion as a driver of sustainable and inclusive growth in rural Africa” is jointly organised by the United Nations University – Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA), the International Training Centre of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and the ILO’s Green Jobs Programme, in the framework of the UNU-INRA green economy project.
