How can we deliver access to energy, sanitation, and opportunities for socio-economic development to poor communities facing accelerated climate change? How can we ensure that this contributes to green growth and green business development?
GREEN-WIN can provide practical answers to these challenging questions by drawing insights from key projects that have implemented integrated "win-win" solutions for clean energy, smart agriculture and waste and greywater management in rural communities in India and Indonesia, and informal peri-urban settlements in South Africa.
Join the GGKP on 20th February 10:00-11:30 (CET) for a webinar to explore lessons from the Genius of SPACE, Zonke Energy, su-re.co (sustainability & resilience) and Development Alternatives projects. Topics to be discussed include enabling policy conditions, community education and engagement, investment opportunities and green business models, and the design and implementation of transformative win-win solutions.

The GREEN-WIN project is a major international transdisciplinary research collaboration applying a solution-oriented approach targeted at increasing the understanding of links between climate action and sustainability and overcoming implementation barriers through win-win strategies. The project critically assessing where and under which conditions win-win and in particular green growth strategies work in practice and where fundamental trade-offs must be faced.
