This joint UNIDO-OECD Stakeholders’ Guidebook presents a range of financial sources and mechanisms that can be used by Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in the European Union Eastern Partnership countries to support Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production (RECP) measures in their operations. The report aims to help SMEs find the efficient and effective financial solutions for their particular needs for RECP investments by detailing requirements and indicating which financial institutions are involved in each country. This Stakeholders’ Guidebook focuses on addressing information gaps in SMEs’ familiarity with government subsidies and financial products and programmes. It is principally intended for owners, management and practitioners of SMEs who are interested in RECP investment. The Guidebook first provides a brief overview of the regional context of RECP activities, opportunities and barriers in the EaP countries, and currently or potentially available capital sources. Chapter 2 consists of six sub-sections by country (i.e. country-specific guidebooks).
