From 28-30 September, FIAN Nederland organises a training weekend in Grolloo (Drenthe), The Netherlands. The theme is: The Human Right To Food in Practice.

This will be an intensive training for people who would like to engage with the right to food and/or FIAN’s work in the future. In the training concrete cases of violations of the right to food in the context of access to natural resources, land grabbing and land conflicts will be analysed. The participants will acquire skills to work on the right to food, use human rights instruments and contribute to the visibility of the struggle for the realisation of the right to food by organizing follow-up activities in their own area.

The entire training weekend costs €75. This fee includes: tuition costs, training materials, full board and lodging (accommodation in shared rooms) and travel costs to the venue from within the Netherlands. These travel costs will be reimbursed after the training weekend. Not included are travel costs outside the Netherlands and any additional costs that might occur during your stay.

Daarom organiseren het BoP Innovation Center en ICCO Cooperation twee webinars, die een praktisch inzicht verschaffen in het ‘hoe en wat’ van vrouwen als inclusive business-partners in base of the pyramid-regio’s.

IRC Event: Why we need to make public finance sexy!

This event will discuss how public and private finance should not be seen as opposing solutions, but rather as two complementary pieces of the same puzzle in the water and sanitation sector. Speaker interventions will support our understanding of how public finance for basic services like water and sanitation requires us to take account of national processed (e.g. municipal tax systems) and the processes of fiscal decentralization which are essential for effective involvement of local government in basic services delivery, now and in the future.

Risk Management Creating Aid-effectiveness and Catalyzing Change

The world is getting more interconnected and interdependent. This creates increasing uncertainties for development interventions. Such uncertainties can either be turned into opportunities or may become obstacles or challenges on the path to development goals. Risk management deals with the uncertainties inherent to any development intervention. By identifying and analysing these uncertainties, development actors will be better placed to make informed decisions and will deliver better results on the ground.
