The Organic Trade for Development (OT4D) program aims to accelerate the development of the organic sectors in Albania, Serbia and Ukraine by promoting organic exports, partnerships with the private sector and the sustainable growth of the domestic organic sector. That is why the OT4D program is launching this call for Public Private Partnerships (PPP) co-financing facility.
What are Public Private Partnerships (PPP)
The main objective of the PPP is supporting organic export ventures that help increase production and trading capacities of organic sector stakeholders in the three focus countries to become more competitive in the international market. The PPP co-financing facility shall enable and foster business partnerships among the Swiss and European sourcing industry and local business actors from Albania, Serbia and Ukraine that contribute:
- to value addition,
- help create jobs,
- create public goods for the sector and
- develop relevant capacities that foster sustainable organic business development with focus on exports in Ukraine, Albania and Serbia.
This program is supported by the Swiss State Secretariate of Economic Affairs (SECO) and implemented by IFOAM - Organics International together with a consortium of the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) and HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation.
Who Can Apply?
The Swiss and EU based sourcing industry in partnership with the Serbian/Albanian/Ukrainian producing industry that are supplying the Swiss and European (EU) organic markets are invited to propose project ideas to the PPP co-financing facility. Applying business partnerships may also involve service providing stakeholders.
