Hot topics in East Africa are renewable energy, waste management and waste to energy, water purification (Blue Economy) and sustainable urban planning. Many companies in Sweden are in the front line in terms of innovation and technologies that could meet the demand we see in East Africa.

We have now created a cluster focusing primarily on "green" urban solutions but also solutions for rural areas. We are starting with East Africa but are open to other markets. What we have seen within SWEACC is the need to collect, coordinate and help more Swedish companies cooperate so they can grow together in East Africa. We know there is a great interest from Africa in Swedish innovation and green technologies. If you join our Green City Cluster you will have a place to share information and experiences when interested to establish and grow your business and/or operation in East Africa. You will have access to special business opportunities developed by the Cluster and shared with the Embassy and local stake holders from East Africa. As a Cluster Member you will always get invitations to attend special (Embassy) mingles with the Ambassadors and visiting high-ranking executives and civil servants from East Africa. You will also get invitations to meet visiting delegations but also join delegation trips to East Africa.

In addition to coordinating companies so that they can cooperate, we will work to introduce appropriate projects (right size and risk) to our clusters as well as offering financing solutions for businesses and projects to our clusters. An important part of this work is the SWEACC membership in EBCAM, where we also have access to a network of investors and other companies in Europe who are also interested in business and investment in Africa.

NGO Cluster

SWEACC has created a new NGO Cluster within our Chamber of Commerce. Non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are starting to become a more important partner for many as they play a major role in pushing for sustainable development in Africa and elsewhere. But how should the business world react to NGOs in the future? Should companies contribute with donations only, or can NGOs be viewed as business partners too? Especially smaller size companies have a hard time to engage governments and inter-governmental tenders, can NGOs be a good partner for such projects? How can your business engage with the NGO community?
