Overview of the project
The national context is characterised by the existence of small initiatives and micro and medium-sized enterprises operating in certain sectors of activity linked to the green economy. These are mainly fishing, aquaculture and small-scale agriculture. Potential activities around natural capital management that can be encouraged include access to renewable energy in rural areas, sanitation, waste collection and recycling, and reforestation. These initiatives, which could heavily involve young people, could take place in several of the country’s agro-ecological zones. However, in the absence of an institutional framework and an information system on the green economy as an entry point, there is a need for a better assessment of the national potential in terms of activities to promote natural capital and, in the same vein, create more added value and jobs for communities, young people and women.
Empowering women microentrepreneurs in the green economy.
