Green Growth Collaboration in Kenya
Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Quercus Group and Ministry of Industrialisation and Enterprise Development.
In November 2015, Quercus Group and the Kenyan Ministry of Industrialisation and Enterprise Development signed a five-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Kenya’s Green Growth development.
Based on the MoU, Quercus Group will act as an advisor for Kenyan government institutions and key stakeholders laying out the path towards Green Growth.
The roll-out of the MoU contains various stages and activities with the end purpose to facilitate the creation of a national collaborative platform, referred to as the Green Growth Cluster Collaboration Platform. This Kenyan cluster will create green, public solutions and new green businesses in Kenya and will just as importantly be communicating the green business opportunities in Kenya internationally.
Through our engagement with local knowledge institutions, communities and county governments, we are tuned into the untapped potential within the Kenyan market. There is great potential to pursue a development pathway that will create green jobs, accelerate poverty reduction, support sustainable growth and restore environmental health and quality. An inclusive and equitable green growth path requires the maximization of benefits from natural resources while minimizing social and environmental costs and risks.
Quercus provides a deep understanding, as well as market insight, e.g. technology and value chain gaps, all of which represent business opportunities for Danish suppliers of agro, food, water and cleantech solutions. We act as your local partner in Kenya to match international clusters, businesses and other networks with these opportunities.
