Environmental Capacities and Technical Services Institute (ECAS) in collaboration with the Institute for Climate Change and Adaptation (ICCA), Kenya Industrial Estate (KIE), Frederich Ebert Stiftung (FES) and the Pan-African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA) has organized a third national dialogue themed Inclusive Green Growth: Investing for a Sustainable Big 4 Agenda.
Building from the past and ongoing processes that seek to promote green growth, it can be deduced that Green Growth is not a state but a process of transformation and a constant dynamic progression
The concept of equity and green growth was well captured and recommended as one of the outcomes of the 1st and 2nd Natural Green Growth Dialogues and affirmed the need to explore avenues through which researchers, policy makers and practitioners could initiate dialogues to contribute to equitable green growth. Moreover Small Scale and Medium enterprise (SMEs) in Kenya are vulnerable to climate change and their level of understanding on how to mitigate and adapt in their operation is limited, due to lack of resources. They are unlikely to have in-house experts on climate change and sustainability, and their funds to bring in outside consultants are limited. SMEs, therefore, are less prepared for climate impacts and more likely to suffer from them. Furthermore, SMEs in Kenya often do not have access to key affordable financial products such as loans, insurance and the technical capacity to manage such resources available to them
The workshop will take place between 8am and 5pm on Wednesday 3rd April, 2019.
