14 GCCA - exchange of best practises - implications for Policy Design 1. Wide range of potentially successful, but not widely replicable models. 1. Need to promote richness in diversity, allow local strengths to be leveraged, and enable coopetition instead of competition between clusters. 2. Enable public-private partnerships, mobilize financing through loans and private capital, incentivize green procurement targets through market-based strategies. 3. If (private) equity finance is the objective, the cluster portfolio needs to match what the money wants.
