Advancing the Green Digital Transition

Enabling an inclusive green transition with digital platforms
20 December, 2022 to 21 December, 2022
Accra, Ghana, Fiesta Royale Hotel

United Nations University Institute for Natural Resources in Africa (UNU-INRA) and United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UN-ECA).

About the Side Event
UNU-INRA and UNECA are hosting stakeholder workshops in participating countries, including Ghana, to actualize the JUSTIS digital portal. The digital portal engages and connects green entrepreneurs across four participating countries-Ghana, Zambia, Namibia, and Ivory Coast, to share ideas and information about business design, branding, market, and performance indicators, better access to new opportunities, and evaluate potential risks.

Aim and Objective of the Side Event

The climate crisis needs deliberate efforts if the world is to restructure current economic systems to viable green businesses. Supporting local enterprises will contribute to the development leapfrog that will create the right mix of local policies, private sector support, and entrepreneurship to create new jobs, facilitate the design of green infrastructure and enable a business space that will give local entrepreneurs the support they need to launch and transform their business.

This workshop aims to demonstrate the potential of the JUSTIS digital portal as an important enabler of the green transition and create awareness among policymakers about the JUSTIS initiative and its utility, function and usefulness in supporting green policy decision-making. Click here to read more...
