The objective of the Green Moonshot is to strengthen the climate competitiveness of MSMEs in developing and emerging economies.
A policy priority for our time is transitioning to an inclusive, low carbon economy. Governments are facing the challenge of both creating growth and employment whilst also responding to the climate crisis, in line with their commitments to the Paris Agreement.
The low carbon transition and the physical impacts of climate change are presenting firms in developing countries with new climate competitiveness challenges. This term means that both the physical risks of climate change and transition risks pose significant threats to businesses. In many cases, particularly in developing countries, the extent of these risks and opportunities remains unclear or unknown due to lack of awareness or capacity to implement changes.
The project provides trade intelligence and technical assistance to strengthen the climate competitiveness of MSMEs to successfully navigate the low carbon transition. This project will drive impact through capacitating MSMEs, and improving the business and policy ecosystem, to enable them to respond to climate risks and harness related opportunities.
The project works in partnership with industry networks, corporations, investors, technology providers and other value chain actors.
