APPLICATION FOR SUPPORT
The first step to design an action plan and benefit from programme support is to send to COLEAD an application for support by filling in the questionnaire which best suits the type of organisation you represent.
COLEAD designs and manages development programmes in the agriculture and food sector (mainly in Africa, Carribean and Pacific States – ACP), funded by donors, mainly the European Union and the Organisation of ACP States (OACPS). COLEAD also contributes to programmes implemented or co-financed by other donors, including the French Development Agency (AFD), the Standards and Trade Development Facility (STDF), ENABEL (the Belgian Development Agency), the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
All programmes aim at increasing the contribution of agri-food value chains to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, in particular in terms of poverty alleviation, food security and nutrition and environmental protection.
COLEAD has developed an operational system of technical assistance and vocational training which is mobilised in the framework of these programmes. Action plans designed with all types of actors in the agri-food sector (focusing on fruit and vegetable value chains) cover a wide range of topics, including sustainable production and trade; plant health; food safety; food production and processing; social accountability and empowerment; environmental management; business management and development; and training methodologies.
To apply for support, please choose from the following partner-beneficiaries categories the one that best fits your structure/organisation.
