Facilitating Sensitisation Workshops on Standards
EU-EAC MARKUP, implemented by GIZ, aims to increase awareness of the importance of standards in trade promotion, as it will lead to more effective participation of the private sector in standards development, and to the implementation of sustainable measures to ensure compliance. It is in this context that GIZ is collaborating with the EAC Secretariat and the East African Business Council (EABC) to organize national sensitization workshops for stakeholders in the value chains of coffee, cocoa, tea, horticulture and spices in Kenya, Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
GIZ intends to engage a firm to design and facilitate the workshops with a view to identifying the main obstacles among private sector operators and ensuring in-depth engagement to find practical solutions towards sustainable public-private collaboration in development and implementation of standards.
GIZ invites experts with the knowledge, skills and experience in strategic planning, and design & facilitation of public-private sector dialogue at international and regional level to submit their applications.
