This program is supported by Australian Government and organized by CED in association with the Australian Centre for Sustainable Business and Development (ACSBD) and the International Centre for Applied Climate Sciences of the University of Southern Queensland, Australia. It was a 3-week leadership development program for the women entrepreneurs of Bangladesh and Nepal jointly selected by CED, Bangladesh Women Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BWCCI), and Industrial Enterprise Development Institute (IEDI), Nepal.
