The infoDev’s Climate Technology Program (CTP) turns climate challenges into opportunities of sustainable growth. By helping local small and medium enterprises (SMEs) commercialize and scale the most innovative private sector solutions to climate change, the CTP contributes to emissions reduction and improved climate resiliency, while also enabling developing countries to build competitive sectors and create jobs.
Much of the emphasis on climate change has been on urging countries to act to avoid environmental catastrophe. This new report frames responding to climate change as an extraordinary economic opportunity, particularly in developing countries. The report, published by infoDev, a global innovation and entrepreneurship program in the Bank Group’s Trade & Competitiveness (T&C) Global Practice, recommends actions by the public and private sectors to foster the growing market for SMEs in the clean technology sector.
