UNDP’s Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme

Engaging the Private Sector to Contribute to Climate Change Mitigation Regional Workshop for Africa and the Arab States.

Recognizing the importance of the role of the private sector in the transition to low-emission development,

UNDP’s Low Emission Capacity Building (LECB) Programme will organize the third regional dialogues workshop on private sector engagement. The workshop will take place in collaboration with the government of Ghana and the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC).

The workshop will bring together government and private sector representatives from nine national LECB projects in the region (DRC, Egypt, Ghana, Kenya, Lebanon, Morocco, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia), as well as technical experts, financial institutions, donors, and development partners that are supporting NAMA design.

The workshop objectives are to: 1) initiate a public-private dialogue on stimulating the involvement of the private sector in climate change mitigation; 2) discuss private sector experiences in mitigation activities and NAMAs; 3) engage in discussion on innovative approaches to support mitigation activities and NAMAs; and 4) exchange lessons learned on improving market conditions to enhance private investment.
