Nachhaltiges Management betrieblicher Ressourcen in Klein- und Mittelbetrieben, Nicaragua
The project aims at enhancing the competitiveness and productivity of industry in Nicaragua, promoting sustained social advance in a way compatible with environmental protection.
The project will foster the development and diffusion of Environmentally Sound Technologies (ESTs) with a special focus on solar energy in order to enhance the quality and productivity of the national industries providing them with the necessary tools that will facilitate access to national and regional markets with environmentally sound products and improving the ability of national enterprises to successfully negotiate their position in the global markets.
The project will rely upon the experience of the UNIDO's CPC (Cleaner Production Center) in Nicaragua with companies from the selected sectors. It will focus mainly on the food, metalmechanic and tourism sectors, in which the CPC has already gained significant experience through the implementation of CP (Cleaner Production) and EST measures.
The activities of the project will focus on capacity building in the development, EST development and promotions, policy advice and implementation of demonstration projects. In this manner the proposed project is responding to Goal 1, Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger; Goal 7, Ensure environmental sustainability, and Goal 8, Develop a global partnership for development, of the United Nations Millennium Development Goals.
