Business Partnership Facility winners announced
Eleven projects in developing countries have received funding from the Belgian "Business Partnership Facility - Enterprises for SDGs", a support programme to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by forging partnerships. In total, EUR 1.75 million has been awarded in this first selection round. Of the winning proposals, one was co-developed by Advance Consulting.
Advance Consulting assisted Rugofarm from Burundi in the development of their project called "Development of export-oriented essential oils supply chains with small farmers". The project targets 1,500 farmers to establish the cultivation of eucalyptus and lemongrass for the production of essential oils. This export-oriented supply chain will be organic and Fair Trade certified, guaranteeing a substantial increase in farmer income.
