#GO4SDGs Presents: Innovative solutions for MSMEs in a green recovery
July 13 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
On 13 July (1:30pm CEST / 7:30am EDT), join the GGKP, SEED and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) for #GO4SDGs Presents: Innovative solutions for MSMEs in a green recovery, an official side event at the 2021 High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development.
The event will feature first-hand insight from the Global Opportunities for Sustainable Development Goals (GO4SDGs) initiative on how micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) are driving sustainable development in Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, and Latin America. Experts will present available tools, knowledge and services that can support a green recovery, and will highlight critical gaps in essential support for MSMEs.
We will also announce the winners of the 2021 SEED Awards for Entrepreneurship in Sustainable Development, which recognizes outstanding eco-inclusive enterprises in Asia and Africa.
Discussion questions include:
- How do MSMEs contribute to a green recovery and the SDGs? What are some of the most inspiring examples from around the world?
- In the wake of COVID-19, how can governments and international organizations help MSMEs recover, thrive and contribute to a green recovery?
- MSMEs demonstrated extraordinary adaptability throughout the pandemic. What are key opportunities for collaborative learning and information exchange?
