What we’re looking for:

High Impact

Low Risk

Low risk projects that have strong political will and sponsorship, local ownership where there are strong execution partners to implement.

Immediate

Projects that have the potential to generate positive short term impact and deliver measurable results.

 

Our focus areas

Our five primary pillars align with the aims and goals of achieving a climate-smart zone.
