SEED Africa Symposium 2016: From Innovation to Imitation

How can we promote the uptake of eco-entrepreneurship by replicating successful business models to more communities, regions and new markets? This key question was discussed by over 450 researchers, practitioners, investors, policymakers and civil society members at this year’s SEED Africa Symposium from 28-29 September in Nairobi. The Symposium was brought to life with the generous support of several partners including SWITCH Africa Green implemented by UNEP with the support of the European Union, UN Women, UNEP, the Government of Flanders and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety.
