Women’s peace-making event proves popular at European Development Days

A lab-debate which was organised by Landell Mills as part of the European Development Days in Brussels was a successful and engaging event. ‘African women in the prevention, management and resolution of African conflicts’ took place on Wednesday the 6th of June and more than 80 people attended.

The session was moderated by Modi Ntambwe (pictured below), Chair of RVDAGE-SVAV Federation of African Associations of Flanders, and discussions focussed on gender mainstreaming within the peace operations and mediation efforts supported by the African Peace Facility (APF).

Film produced under the EU-ACP TradeCom II programme showcases entrepreneurs in Mauritius

A film produced under the EU-ACP Tradecom II project was screened at a recent Europe Week event organised by the EU Delegation to the Republic of Mauritius.

The film, called Reaping the benefits of the Economic Partnership Agreement between the EU and the Republic of Mauritius, features a selection of enterprises we worked with under the project Strengthening Export Competitiveness for Inclusive Growth in Mauritius, especially in the context of the implementation of the interim Economic Partnership Agreement (i-EPA), which concluded in early March 2018.

Throughout the project, 32 participating Mauritian enterprises, often led by women or young entrepreneurs, received one-to-one business coaching. This included guidance on product quality requirements, rules of origin, marketing and business development. The businesses we worked with include jewellery and clothing producers, tech companies and agri-businesses, among others. Their products have vast potential to access European markets. The support provided helped participating enterprises to sell their products abroad, including in the EU.

The project was managed by Landell Mills and funded by the EU-ACP TradeCom II programme. It was delivered in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Regional Integration and International Trade.

Internal knowledge sharing continues at Landell Mills with agricultural value-chains

Another ‘lunch and learn’ internal-knowledge session has taken place at Landell Mills with a training on agricultural value chains conducted by Director, Simon Foxwell. Simon used a horticultural value-chain project in Afghanistan being designed by Landell Mills as an example of the different stages involved in a value-chain project and the session was attended by colleagues from across Landell Mills’ divisional teams.

lunch and learn.jpg

Simon began by discussing the common actors in a value chain, from the upstream to the downstream. The session then examined in detail the various factors that should be considered when designing a value-chain project, including: selection of the product; selection of a geographical area; and identifying the potential challenges and opportunities at each stage of the chain, which can be determined by carrying out a value-chain analysis. Simon concluded by looking at the various interventions that can support value chains, opening a debate as to whether donors such as ADB should only finance public goods (e.g. agricultural research facilities), or whether incentives are valid to increase uptake of private goods (e.g. better quality seeds and saplings).

Zarafshon Integrated Sub-basin Project attends regional pre-consultations of the Citizens Forum of the 8th World Water Forum

Five members of the Zarafshon Integrated Sub-basin Project’s working group, a pre-cursor of the Zarafshon River Basin agency, attended the regional pre-consultations of the Citizens Forum of the 8th World Water Forum (WWF8).

The Citizen’s Forum was organised by the Ministry of Energy and Water Resources of Tajikistan on the behalf of the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan, Citizens Commission of the WWF8 and German-Kazakh University. 120 participants attended, representing several civil society organisations. The Forum provided an opportunity for citizens to be involved in discussions about water issues and provide innovative solutions to the problems they face.

The Zarafshon Integrated Sub-basin Project, which is managed by Landell Mills and funded by the EU, gave a presentation at the event to raise awareness of its work in the region. As well as networking, attendees also prepared the ‘Message of Central Asian civil society to WWF8’ to resolve water-related issues in Central Asia. The message was presented at the session ‘Political Governance Versus Sustainable Governance: Financial Resources, Interests and Power’ in Brazil on March 20th 2018. The project also sponsored a member of Ministry of Energy and Water Resources of Tajikistan to attend the WWF8 in Brazil.

Landell Mills trains NGOs on EU financial management procedures under the Sudan Food Security Programme – Rural Smallholders Component

Landell Mills’ technical assistance team based in Khartoum recently organised a five-day training event for all NGO project partners of the Sudan Food Security Programme – Rural  Smallholders Component. The NGOs include the  Charity Organisation for Rehabilitation & Development (CORD), SOS Sahel, World Vision, WHH, Zenab and ZOA. Other external NGO EU contract-holders also attended, including ADRA, Concern, COOPI, International Aid Services, Islamic Relief, Plan International, Practical Action and the Red Crescent.

The training focussed on EU financial management procedures and was delivered to the NGOs’ finance managers and senior accountants to help them prepare for the closure of their projects. It informed participants about general aspects, procurement, asset management, closure, accounting, reporting and auditing. The Project’s Finance and Contracts Advisor, Ildefonso Ramos, led the event. He has a wealth of experience in EU financial management procedures and devised a programme that was 40% theory and 60% practical, with interactive group exercises.

31 participants attended, and each was awarded a training certificate on the final day. The EU Delegation’s Head of Finance, Contracts and Audit Section, Johannus Welten, attended the opening and closing ceremonies and joined a Q&A session with the participants at the end of the workshop. The one-hour Q&A session was particularly useful, as the EU’s NGO partners could discuss common problems with the Finance and Contracts team at the Delegation. Attendees also benefitted from interacting with staff from other NGOs implementing similar projects and facing the same problems and challenges.

Participant feedback on the event was positive:

  • “Mr Alfonso’s preparation of the methodology and material was very good. His selection of material helped make the training fun while learning.”
  • “Mr Alfonso has sound knowledge of EU policies and procedures. He also shows great interest in his audience and is always available for any clarifications.”
  • “I am happy about the trainer. He is one of the most experienced trainers I have ever seen.”

The CSO Fair aimed to increase visibility of the work carried out by civil society organisations in Zambia and the support they receive from the European Union and its Member States. This year’s event saw 40 participating CSOs (civil society organisations) showcasing their work at the East Park Mall in Lusaka. Organisations from various sectors were represented at the Fair, including health, gender, education, agriculture, environment, government and finance.

In line with this year’s carnival theme, many of the stallholders provided games and competitions for visitors to take part in. Attractions included a stilt walker, human statues, and hourly dance performances from Barefeet Theatre. 

IMG_20180512_111459.jpg

Guests were encouraged to visit as many stands as possible and pick up a coupon from each one, which could then be exchanged for a prize, depending on how many they had collected. Prizes included toys, books, stationery and EU-branded t-shirts. Other popular activities at the event included an EU-based quiz and face painting.

The Fair was officially opened by the Ambassador of the European Union to Zambia, H.E. Alessandro Mariani, and the Minister of Community Development and Social Services, Hon. Emerine Kabanshi M.P. The Ambassador also gave a number of live radio interviews during the Fair and the event was promoted heavily both online and within print media.

Landell Mills delivers Panj-Amu River Basin Agency Data Management Training in Afghanistan

Data training Panj Amu c.jpg

The Panj-Amu River Basin Agency (RBA) Data Management Training was designed to assess knowledge and qualifications of the RBA staff for data management and analysis required for River Basin Management. Ten participants took part, including hydrologists and water data management directors from the Panj-Amu RBA and associated Sub-basin Agencies. They attended classroom sessions in the morning, followed by applied practical training exercises in the afternoon. Participants strengthened their knowledge of spatial planning, and geographic and visual tools such as Google Earth, GPS and GIS systems. They also improved their knowledge of river height and flow data collection, and the use of this data in water resource planning.

Landell Mills delivers trade policy workshop in Tanzania

Tanzania workshop a.jpg

A trade policy workshop held in Dar es Salaam last month concluded the Landell Mills-managed project entitled: ‘Targeted Support to REPOA and Zanzibar Ministry of Trade, Industry and Marketing  (ZMTIM) to Increase Competitiveness of Primary Producers and Diversify the Export Base in Light of the Trading Opportunities with the EU’. It was the second and final event organised under the project, with the first workshop focusing on the issues of quality management in the Zanzibar-Pemba export corridor.

The final policy dialogue workshop, which took place on the 5th March, brought together a range of policymakers and non-state actors, including representatives of the private sector who are involved in shaping the agricultural trade landscape in Tanzania.

Tanzania workshop b.jpg

Previous field work identified bottlenecks that limit the country’s agricultural competitiveness and export diversification, such as poor road infrastructure and costly quality certifications. The findings of this study enabled the project team to draw informed recommendations designed to mitigate these limitations in Tanzania. In addition, the project developed training modules and analytical tools for an independent research institution, REPOA (Research on Poverty Alleviation). These will allow for more detailed analyses of trade in Tanzania and the factors that determine export competitiveness along specific value chains such as horticulture, floriculture, spices and seaweed. It is hoped that deeper analysis of Tanzanian trade will help enhance the country’s international exports and promote sustainable economic growth.

The project was commissioned by the EU-ACP TradeCom II programme, which contributes to sustainable economic development and poverty reduction in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries through closer regional integration and increased participation in the global economy. It was launched in May 2017 and promotes sustainable economic development and poverty reduction in the United Republic of Tanzania through closer regional integration and increased participation in the global economy.

How Do Women Win Elections in 2019? A one day seminar in Abuja, Nigeria

In anticipation of the February 2019 general election in Nigeria, Landell Mills worked closely with the European Union Delegation to organise a one day seminar in Abuja to promote women’s participation in politics.

IMG_7512.JPG

Women are severely underrepresented in Nigerian government institutions: of the National Assembly’s 469 members, less than 5% are women. The EU has expressed its commitment to closing this gender gap and aims to drive sustainable growth through gender equality initiatives.

The seminar, entitled How Do Women Win Elections in 2019? took place at the Shehu Musa Yar’Adua Centre on the 23rd of March, shortly after International Women’s Day. Ketil Karlsen, head of the EU delegation to Nigeria and ECOWAS, explained that the seminar would celebrate progress in gender equality and women’s rights, while pressing for further development in this area.

IMG_7603.JPG

Throughout the event participants were encouraged to explore ways in which the political selection process could become more inclusive, and foster a more accommodating environment for women in politics. The day primarily concerned the 2019 elections and increasing female representation in the dominant political parties.

Nigerian women continue to endure political, economic and social inequality. This seminar was one of a range of EU initiatives designed to empower women and promote equality.
