Titre : Review of the Policy & Institutional Landscape for Eco-Innovation in Africa

Région/Pays : Afrique

Date : February 2020 to October 2020

Descriptif
Garnering supports and legitimacy for programs and initiatives run in Africa from regional and national governments could undoubtedly lead to ownership, high visibility, success, and sustainability of such programs and initiative. However, the process of engaging with these high-level bodies and governments is not straightforward. It requires strong champions who have established longstanding relationships both formally and informally with these governments to achieve the desired objectives.

This study will review and analyse existing policies and institutions related to eco-innovation development in the six RECIRCULATE participating countries including Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Malawi, Botswana, and Zambia with a view to understand what works (successes), what does not work (failures) and why (reasons for successes or failures).

Through this study, gaps in policies could be identified and recommendations made to the respective governments for change. Such change could also be advocated for deliberately depending on mandate and resources. Again, institutions responsible for eco-innovation will be mapped to understand the actors, roles, linkages, and contexts that will lead to overall sustainability of eco-innovation in these countries.

Objectifs
* Review and analyse existing policies and institutions related to eco-innovation development in the six RECIRCULATE participating countries including Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Malawi, Botswana, and Zambia. * Conduct a high-level policy dialogue aimed at creating a platform for interactions among selected senior policymakers from the six RECIRCULATE countries to share their experiences, lessons as well as learn from each other on aspects of eco-innovation in their respective countries.
