Participating in the Solutions Lab revolutionized Jonathan's perspective. One of his main achievements in the program was identifying key stakeholders who are crucial for the effective implementation of his climate solution in Madagascar.
With the understanding that active business engagement is essential to effective climate action, he saw the need to create an enabling environment for the private sector. Identifying this need paved the way for tangible progress in his mission and significant advances in building climate resilience in the region.
