Supporting sustainability projects in the African cotton and textile sector
With our own funds and on behalf of different funding entities, we support the implementation of sustainability projects in the African cotton sector. Our engagement ranges from technical short-term assignments, to project management support, to training and coaching, and field trials.
In 2017, we conducted short term assignments and provided management support to the implementation of two projects by the Aid by Trade Foundation.
With substantial financial support coming from the German Ministry for the time period 2017-2020, we will increase our project portfolio substantially in the coming months.
Check our project descriptions below for an overview of our activties in the field.
