The purpose of this “Driving Green Recovery Pathways in South and Southeast Asia: Insights from Micro, Small, and Medium-Sized Enterprises and Intermediaries” report is to showcase the importance of green and social MSMEs to drive Green Recovery and identify the supports that the intermediary and policy could provide. The insights in this report are derived from The Green Recovery Forum: Leveraging the contributions of MSMEs to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
The Green Recovery Forum is a collaborative partnership between the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI), the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE), SEED and partners. The forum highlights MSMEs’ potential and contribution to the Green Recovery and their need for support to build back the economy while emphasising the MSMEs’ green and social inclusion approach to achieving the SDGs. The Green Recovery Forum consists of two lead-up events which are the Green Recovery Enterprise Clinic and the Green Recovery Intermediary Lab and the Green Recovery Multi-Stakeholder Forum which is a culmination point for the forum where findings from the Clinic and Lab are presented in this report for intermediaries and policymakers to effect change in MSMEs policies.
