Reinvent? Replicate!

Replicating Eco-Inclusive Enterprise Solutions for Green Growth and Sustainable Development in West Africa

How do we realise the full potential of enterprise solutions for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how do we propel West Africa on the path towards a green economy?

Eco-inclusive enterprises can play a critical role in fostering the implementation of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and establishing the green economy. Innovative enterprise solutions provide suitable approaches to clean energy, climate-smart agriculture, waste management and recycling challenges. Solving complicated problems that eco-inclusive enterprises address requires recognition and understanding of the challenge and an analysis of the best practices needed to resolve it. The hardest part for enterprises is gaining the appropriate expertise if they do not have it in-house. In this sense, rather than reinventing the wheel, enterprises need to replicate! 

How do we replicate proven, successful eco-inclusive business models to trigger action
towards West Africa’s endeavour to contribute to green growth and the Sustainable Development Goals?

The SEED West Africa Symposium will bring together around over 100 enterprises, financial institutions, policy makers, business development service providers and civil society representatives to develop groundbreaking approaches and explore partnerships essential to the replication of business models in order to successfully contribute to green growth and sustainable development in West Africa.

The event is part of the implementation of "Promoting Eco-Entrepreneurship in Africa", a SWITCH-Africa Green multi-country project in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, South Africa and Uganda.

Highlights of the first SEED West Africa Symposium:

  • Interactive prototyping sessions will provide a platform for ground breaking solutions mutually developed by stakeholders from business, politics, academia and civil society.
  • Inspiring panel and roundtable discussions will catalyse ideas on a supportive ecosystem for micro, small and medium-sized social and environmental enterprises.
  • The SEED Awards Ceremony will honour outstanding social and environmental enterprises based in Ghana and Burkina Faso with the SAG-SEED Awards supported by the European Union and SWITCH Africa Green.
  • The SEED Exhibition will showcase innovative, locally driven and entrepreneurial approaches to sustainable development challenges of eco-inclusive enterprises from across the region.
