Hi Lake,
Here with exceeding thanks to you for exact rectifying of the title,
“Promoting Differed Gratification Paradigm to enable Entrepreneurial Rural Women and youth to alleviate poverty and reverse climate change”
Hoping the response has been long overdue, a scenario of long travel from remoteness to internet server commercial points.
I elucidate on workshops have tremendous role of introducing enlightenment projects with insightful best enterprises practices, policies, and regulations for guided decisions right for development advocacy to ensuring climate systems are preserved with conservation oriented income generation entrepreneurial ventures. Organized society groups tap into activities that implore social change from development assistance focused on priorities that link pertinent new technologies to the skills mix. Rural areas dependency on smallholder subsistence agriculture spares fewer surpluses to supply on commercial markets since they are denied up to date skills to suffer low crop resilience to climate change. The Deferred Gratification Paradigm (DGP) is familiarized for most functional businesses. As a pro-poor business model, it’s developed and operationalized along creation of mutually beneficial enterprises linkages between micro and small later to medium local production units with linkup to local, national, regional and global; financial, informational, appropriate technologies, and demonstrational case studies making practical differences elsewhere. The capacity in rural remoteness is inhibited by locality limitation (human capital resource; born, roused, nurtured, mentored) eventually employment sought in this indifferent village. The intervention when well understood seeks to open up rural resourcefulness that promote resource investment, foregoing immediate pleasure, equipping with technical, financial and managerial expertise to advancing social wealth and future prosperity. The biggest obstacle is workshops, conferences, seminars as conduit of change being accessible to traditional geographical scope. Albeit, inexorable technology being expensive to be developed in rural places and inadequate knowledge on existence of new innovations and inventions to spur renewable energy adaption in off- grid areas for economical continuation exacerbates backwardness and antiquated reasoning on current affairs. On climate change, rural farmers are stakeholders in closer proximity to save natural forests and vegetation, solve global warming through empowerment to reduce green houses gases emissions. Village locations have end-user markets of mass purchase abilities for even executive solar products yet incommensurately delivered due to mainly being unreached. People will accept the truth of reversing the damage when involved and are eager to embrace change that ameliorates climate deleterious environmental and ecological effects on the fragile ecosystem. Sustainable measures have been evolving overtime and are delayed by lack of holistic mechanisms to deliver on penetration to rural market niches for instance use of solar power equipments to change lighting predicaments as well as generating biomass burning energy to complete cooking as cleaner solutions. The rural women and youth are for so long terribly left behind on hosting conferences, seminars and workshops about clean and renewable enterprises as low cost options in harnessing low carbon economies. This being exaggerated by a deficiency in learning barriers that bring together, train in skills and equip with necessary expertise to develop and use alternative renewable livelihood sources made available through forums that caution on recognizing that shared resources including; natural environment, human ingenuity, financial and technological transfer is imperative to support rural economies as well as combat climate change.


Isaac commented on Micro-Business Incubator (MBI)

It is so maverous from because this opine directs rural predicamnets that rural remote areas have all resources from food to fuel that suports urban albeit the latter development and prosper at the exepeense of rural folks without electrity, inernet and blurred in ingnorance and opportuitiy, limited wheherwithals and low technological access for meaningful resource exploitation remains fundamnetal inhibition for sustainable development.
