EVENT: Business Partnerships: can your company provide climate and development solutions?
The Climate and Development Knowledge Network (CDKN) and the Aldersgate Group invite you to discuss climate and development business opportunities, which will inform the establishment of a new CDKN facility to provide funding for business partnerships.
Businesses are critical to the challenge of reducing carbon emissions, adapting to the effects of a changing climate and creating green jobs and economic growth – together these can lead to climate compatible development. But breaking into and scaling up climate related products and services can be hampered by barriers such as a lack of knowledge and skills, imperfect competition or high transaction costs.
By working together, businesses can overcome such barriers – partnerships can bridge knowledge and skills gaps, open up new markets and reduce the costs of exchange. Aid programmes such as CDKN’s can support private sector opportunities but need to be grounded in an understanding of business needs and ambitions.
9.00am – 12.00pm 19th March (Breakfast will be served from 8.15am)
PwC’s More London offices, London Bridge
Outcomes: The event will inform the establishment of a new CDKN facility to provide funding for business partnerships on climate and development. A report from the Aldersgate Group and CDKN will be produced following the event, to summarise opportunities and challenges.
