Mainstream Growth in PSD-strategies! "Business already has the products and solutions which are waiting to be diffused. However, what is needed is for governments to recognise this and support both flexible regulatory and voluntary policy frameworks as well as collaboration on a much broader scale."
Kris Gopalakrishnan, chairman of BASD "We recognize that a dynamic, inclusive, well-functioning, socially and environmentally responsible private sector is a valuable instrument that can offer a crucial contribution to economic growth and reducing poverty and promoting sustainable development. In order to foster private-sector development, we shall continue to pursue appropriate national policy and
regulatory frameworks in a manner consistent with national laws to encourage public and private initiatives, including at the local level, to foster a dynamic and well-functioning business sector, and to facilitate entrepreneurship and innovation including among women, the poor and the vulnerable. We will work to improve income growth and distribution, inter
alia through raising productivity, empowering women and protecting labour rights, and taxation. We recognize that the appropriate role of Government in relation to the promotion and regulation of the private sector will vary from country to country depending on national circumstances."

manufacturer of edible oils and soaps expanded production capacity and improved production efficiency: Annual benefits include more than USD 623,000 in savings. Impact Assessment of ILO
1.9 million additional full time jobs could be created (Though 400,000 jobs might be lost in low-productivity dung cake making)
with the right just transition policies in place for those who may lose their jobs, they could be retrained and re-employed in production of organic fertilizer from the slurry of the biogas plants.
