 An Introduction to CEGESTI and their Work on SPP

Join the upcoming webinar, An Introduction to CEGESTI and their Work on SPP ! It will be held on June 30th, 2014, 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM CEST.

CEGESTI is a NGO founded in 1990 with the mission of contributing to sustainable development in Latin America. For the last 8 years, it has been advocating for SPP in Central America, by raising awareness, developing manuals and other tools, as well as by strengthening the capacities of individuals and organizations through training and technical assistance.

In developing countries, such as the Central American ones, not only the legal and financial resources are scarce, but also there is a great need to sensitize officers into enforcing basic laws, such as decent work on local providers. Also, there is great resistance from the private sector, as they believe SPP will make them less competitive, due to their lack of capacity to adapt locally produced goods to environment criteria (or even to comply with local labor standards versus products coming from even poorer countries with lower standards).

During this webinar CEGESTI will present their work in SPP and its findings on the challenges of SPP in developing countries.

This will be the second in a series of webinars held through the Implementation Coordination group of the 10YFP SPP Programme (formerly the SPPI). The purpose of the webinar series is to promote the share of knowledge and information between 10YFP SPP Programme members, in the hopes of spurring future collaboration.
