Valuing Natural Capital & Local Communities for Business in Eastern & Southern Africa: Transforming Decision-making for SMEs
This webinar series aims to build awareness of the relevance and potential of a capitals approach for decision-making in Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Eastern & Southern Africa.
The series will build on the outcomes and insights delivered through the online African Forum on Green Economy – Investing in Natural Capital for a Resilient Africa, organised by the Capitals Coalition, IUCN and partners, in 2020. This new series will feature and discuss practical examples, opportunities and tools for SMEs in Eastern & Southern Africa to include the value of natural capital and local communities in decision-making.
In this third webinar of the series, we will explore how the SME360X software, developed by GIST Impact, can help SMEs measure and value their impacts and dependencies on natural capital. There will be a demonstration of the software and a case study from a current GIST Impact client highlighting how the software has helped to transform their decision-making.
