The Mexican-German Climate Change Alliance and the Conservation of Biodiversity in the Neovolcanic Axis COBEN II project at the GIZ Mexico Biodiversity Cluster participated in a virtual forum organized by the State of Mexico’s Mexican Employers’ Association (COPARMEX) to present the “Call for the Strengthening of Socio-environmental Entrepreneurship in the Post-Covid-19 Context” and as part of the activities carried out in the Private Sector Working Group, to promote strategic alliances with the private sector.
COPARMEX Estado de México and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH begin their strategic alliance with the presentation of the Call for the Strengthening of Socio-environmental Enterprises in the Post-Covid-19 Context. The forum took place online on Tuesday 21 July, with the presence of over 75 representatives of companies, ventures, and media outlets, including Grupo Milenio, El Sol de Toluca, Portal, and El Valle.
As part of the activities to be carried out between both institutions, the DeveloPPP program was presented to COPARMEX partners –as well as integrated cooperations, such as public-private cooperation mechanisms– in order to promote economic development and recovery that integrate sustainability as a fundamental axis. This is part of the activities carried out by the GIZ Private Sector Working Group. Likewise, the call for the strengthening of socio-environmental enterprises is one of the concrete actions promoted by the German cooperation, alongside its government counterparts SEMARNAT and CONANP, who strengthen the socio-environmental projects that require an additional boost in a context of COVID-19.
