About the GrEEn Project
The Boosting Green Employment and Enterprise Opportunities in Ghana (GrEEn) project is a 4-year action funded by the European Union through its Emergency Trust Fund (EUTF) for Africa.
Implemented by SNV Ghana and the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF) in close partnership with the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, GrEEn aims at creating jobs for over 5,000 people through the promotion of green jobs and growth of Ghana’s local, circular economy. The project will achieve this by improving skills and increasing access to finance for youth, women and returning migrants as well as Micro, Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (MSMEs) in the Ashanti and Western regions of Ghana.
About the webinar
Under the GrEEn project, SNV Ghana conducted a market scan for the renewable energy sector during its inception phase with the main aim of identifying potential employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for youth, women and returning migrants.
GrEEn is inviting you to join an online webinar to validate the main findings of the market scan for the renewable energy sector.
Questions to be discussed during the meeting include:
What are the markets within the two targeted regions?
Who are the key stakeholders and players in the sector? How can interventions in the sector be coordinated?
Which areas has GrEEn identified as high scalability areas?
How is the renewable energy sector relevant to COVID-19’s recovery phase?
