FANRPAN participates in SEED Panel Discussion
29 March 2012


A Seed Symposium was held at the CSIR Convention Centre in Pretoria, South Africa on 29 March 2012. This Seed initiative seeks to increase knowledge and understanding about small-scale social and environmental enterprises and their role in the green economy. Two key questions drive the initiative:
  • Is it possible to determine whether and how such enterprises are making a contribution to social, environmental and economic progress within their communities; and
  • What are the enabling factors and barriers to making that contribution?
One of the key massages that came out of the panel discussions was that, supporting small-scale, environmental entrepreneurs can help tackle Energy, Agriculture and Food Security challenges and support the transition to a green economy.

Sepo Hachigonta, FANRPAN's Climate Change Manager participated in a panel discussion titled "The Green Economy in Africa-Climate Change, Agriculture and Energy- Visions and Perspectives. The panel discussion was moderated by Nick Nuttal of UNEP who also delivered the keynote address.
