On 17th October 2023, from 3pm to 5 pm (CET), the OACPS Secretariat, with the support of Business ACP, will organise a webinar-based Knowledge Sharing Cycle (KSC) on successful initiatives developed by the Intra-ACP PSD programmes.
Over the years, the Intra-ACP Private Sector Development (PSD) Strategy has been implemented through the Intra-ACP programmes aimed at supporting key Private Sector areas including business environment reform, value chains development, financial inclusion, access to finance for MSMEs, informal economy, digitalisation and women/youth economic empowerment, among others.
The Knowledge Sharing Cycle consists of five sessions of 2 hours each focused on strategic Private Sector areas: (1) Digitalisation, (2) Women Economic Empowerment, (3) Agri-business, (4) Green/Blue Economy, (5) Knowledge Management and Sustainability. It is an opportunity to fuel the discussion and boost the knowledge around these topics, leveraging on the Intra-ACP PSD programmes experience.
The first session is on Digitalisation in Private Sector Development in ACP countries and the involvement of the Intra-ACP programmes to the development of this key cross-cutting area.
