In this project, the NCPC-SA hosts capacity building workshops and tools to support small and medium companies (SMEs) to access finance.
Through the workshops (currently held virtually) the NCPC-SA facilitates access to funding mechanisms that support implementation of Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) – including energy efficiency, clean energy, water and input materials projects.
Some of the workshops focus on the development of business plans for projects that would be attractive to financial institutions.
- Financial institutions and government institutions attend and present at the workshops.
- SMEs have the opportunity to engage with these institutions and get advice.
- The NCPC-SA can then offer technical support to SMEs in developing bankable projects.
Interested companies need not wait for the next workshop, but can email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance with financial linkages.
