Green Technologies and Innovations for Inclusive Growth. In 2011, the Gauteng Department of Economic Development through The Innovation Hub partnered with the World Bank’s infoDev division to develop a business plan for the Climate Innovation South Africa. This was on the back of the Gauteng Government realizing the importance of the Green Economy on the future growth of Gauteng and the need to develop small medium enterprises (SMEs) to provide solutions to the many emerging challenges in the energy, water and environment sectors. The business plan was completed in 2012 and we have since been exploring the best ways of funding its implementation. We appreciate the opportunity to meet with our partners, World Bank’s infoDev, Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA) and other business sectors as we work towards an inclusive green to promote innovative technologies and business models that address local climate challenges whilst creating jobs and improving the economic growth in South Africa.

Because of you development in ICT and engineering in Gauteng will make the province more competitive and a leading smart province. In the wise words of the late former president of South Africa, Utata Rolihlanhla Nelson Mandela, “Young people must take it upon themselves to ensure that they receive the highest education possible so that they can represent us well in future as future leaders.” His words serve as a beacon to guide us as we work towards moving our country forward”.
