From the organizer:
UNDP Kosovo*, in partnership with the Government of Japan and the Innovation Centre Kosovo (ICK), has launched the Kosovo Green Challenge to support green recovery in the private sector by fostering an enabling environment, with a people-centred approach.
The global turmoil that we are faced with has disrupted value chains and business operations. The economic crisis, Ukraine war, and energy crisis have led to high levels of insecurity and poverty. This all comes at a time when extreme weather events and the impacts of climate change have intensified.
Do you have an innovative solution in response to these compounding environmental, economic, social, and health crises that can put us on a just and inclusive green recovery? Are you a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) that wants to build resilience, but lacks knowledge and funding?
Apply for our open call and join the BOOST x Kosovo acceleration programme to fast forward your innovative solutions to the next level and amplify your impact!
We want to build the capacities of up to 50 SMEs with a high potential to transition towards a green recovery by focusing on sustainable business models, risk management and disaster resilience. At the end of the programme, 15 SMEs will be awarded with grants of around 10.000 EUR (20% co-financing is requested from the SMEs).
We want to support innovative green solutions, by focusing particularly on innovations that promote greener business practices and boost:
