The Green and Inclusive Business Toolbox: Promoting Green and Inclusive Business Models in Development Cooperation Programmes, published by GIZ, includes a capacity development tool designed by CAD.
The tool “Remote Strategic Advisory Services” helps identify and establish a relationship with companies that include people living at the economic base of the pyramid (BoP) in their value chain. It encourages potentially inclusive companies to engage in development cooperation.
The Remote Advisory Service for Inclusive Business allows analysing the inclusive business potential of a national company at a low cost. This is especially useful in countries where no private sector development programmes with inclusive business activities exist or a fragile context impedes international experts from working in the field.
The service consists of a set of tools that aim to identify key challenges along the value chain of the company and offer potential solutions.
