LEDS GP webinar: Mobilizing a local green economy using a sector development agency


Join the webinar here.

Established in 2010, GreenCape is a sector development agency that supports and promotes the green economy—low carbon, resource efficient and socially inclusive—in the Western Cape Province, South Africa. GreenCape is the first African member of the International Cleantech network, and was recently recognized at the UNCTAD Investment Promotion Awards at the World Investment Forum, for its role in partnering with national and regional investment promotion agencies in the local green economy.

This webinar, from our Subnational Integration Working Group and GreenCape, focuses on:

  • How GreenCape was established by the provincial government.
  • How, through its work across government, business and academia, it has contributed to realizing significant private sector investment and employment in green business, technologies and manufacturing.
  • The sector development agency model and GreenCape’s approach to its work.
  • Factors that have contributed to GreenCape’s success.

This webinar accompanies a recent case study on GreenCape’s success, which you can access here.
