Implementation of the program will be guided by a strategic results framework which is influenced by the ProGED project. Similarly, the program has three strategic focus areas to facilitate implementation.


A. Green Information and Awareness – this strategy centers on increasing the awareness of MSMEs and other stakeholders about climate change and its negative impact on their business and how the adoption of greening measures and strategies can further minimize its effect while enhancing resilience and competitiveness.

B. Green Linkages and Matchmaking – this strategy focuses on facilitating linkage between MSMEs and green business development service providers, green technology suppliers, and green financing institutions that can help MSMEs advance their greening initiatives.

C. Green Policy Framework – the focal point of this strategy is to further develop and establish the policy framework in mainstreaming the GED initiative in the programs, projects and activities within DTI regional and provincial level.
