The SMEDAN Climate and Green Energy Desk (SCGED) is an initiative of the Small and Medium Enterprise Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN). Our dedicated team is committed to catalyzing sustainable entrepreneurship in response to the climate crisis.
This initiative aims to empower and support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) actively engaged in the development of clean energy solutions and other climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies.
The urgency of this initiative cannot be overstated, as the climate crisis increasingly affects important sectors of Nigeria’s economy, most notably agriculture and sustainable power generation.
SCGED will foster entrepreneurial innovations that address the pressing challenges posed by climate change. It will conduct thorough research and development to identify the specific obstacles encountered by SMEs in the climate entrepreneurship sector.
Training: It will establish a comprehensive database of SMEs operating in this field and provide them with training and capacity-building programs to enhance their skills and knowledge.
Funding: SCEID is to offer funding support, helping SMEs tackling the climate crisis leverage both local and global funding opportunities
Partnership: The initiative also plans to establish partnerships with global organizations to foster collaboration in delivering innovative solutions for environmental sustainability.
SMEDAN urged climate entrepreneurs and SMEs to take advantage of this opportunity by registering for support on its dedicated website.
