The Alliance for Product Quality in Africa as part of Invest for Jobs and the GIZ-project ‘Supporting Sustainability Aspects in the Implementation of EU Economic Partnership Agreements (NEW)’ are inviting agricultural advisors in Botswana, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Lesotho, Madagascar, Morocco, Namibia, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa as well as in Tunisia to a three-day webinar series on the new EU organic regulations.
The new Regulation (EU) 2018/848 on organic production and labelling of organic products has come into force on 1st of January 2022 and will bring many changes for organic producers, processors and traders, especially also in countries outside of the European Union.
To raise awareness about the new regulation and to inform about the specific changes that come along with the revision, we will be holding a live webinar series starting in February this year. The trainings will help participants to identify the impacts the new regulation will have on organic agricultural and processing activities, and to impart that knowledge with the companies they advise.
The trainings will be held by experienced trainers of AFC and Enjeux et des Hommes, a subsidiary of the ECOCERT Group. The trainings are composed of webinars and E-learning modules.
The exact dates for the training sessions in English, French and Arabic will be published on the website of AFC. All trainings are offered free of charge and are limited to a maximum of 20 participants, so be sure to save your spot fast!

The project is a joint activity of the Alliance for Product Quality in Africa as part of the Special Initiative "Decent Work for a Just Transition" and the global project ‘Supporting Sustainability Aspects in the Implementation of EU Economic Partnership Agreements (NEW)’, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
The consortium around the company Eranove successfully applied for a grant by the Facility Investing for Employment. The Facility is part of Invest for Jobs. On 26 January 2023, the grant contract for 5.17 million euros was signed in Abidjan. In three years, 14,000 people will attend the various training courses offered by the academy and more than 1,100 jobs are expected to be created.
Since its launch in June 2022, the Soft Landing initiative of Invest for Jobs in Tunisia has facilitated the arrival of 10 European and African IT companies in the country. In return, the companies committed to create over 100 high-quality tech jobs for Tunisians.
To implement BMZ’s development-policy priority areas in the 20th legislative period and to address changing global challenges, the Special Initiative on Training and Job Creation will have a new name and focus. As of January 2023, it will be called Special Initiative "Decent Work for a Just Transition".
