File chemical/x-pdb Mutual capacity development
by Christie Miedema published 03-07-2017 last modified 14-03-2018 12:24
[June 2017] Mutual capacity development is the FGG Alliance's distinct approach to capacity development, to ensure that civil society actors can speak with a loud, collective voice, have the necessary knowledge, advocacy skills and influence, and are able to undertake action freely and safely. In the latest publication, members of Fair Green and Global Alliance explained our distinct capacity development approach that can help address many of the world’s greatest problems. Whereas these problems manifest themselves most visibly and tangibly in low and lower-middle income countries, they are often rooted in global structures and systems. Therefore, solving them is not possible without global cooperation. This includes a concerted effort by strong civil society actors – located in many different places and using different types of leverage – to influence different decision-makers. Mutual capacity development ensures that civil society actors can speak with a loud, collective voice, have the necessary knowledge, advocacy skills and influence, and are able to undertake action freely and safely.

by Christie Miedema published 16-06-2017 — filed under: , , ,
A devastating fire in a Bangladesh textile mill at the beginning of this month reaffirms the need to extend and expand the Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety (the Accord), due to end in May 2018. The Accord, established four years ago to improve structural, electrical and fire safety in Bangladesh's garment factories, entered its final year last month and is currently in the process of being renegotiated. While the Accord covers 2.5 million workers in the ready-made-garment industry, workers in Bangladesh's textile mills remain unprotected by this agreement.

Clean Clothes Campaign is today calling on members of the European Parliament to call for a trade investigation into labour rights abuses as part of a resolution on Bangladesh that will be debated this Wednesday. Such an investigation would be carried out by the European Commission in order to assess whether the ongoing and systematic repression of trade union rights in Bangladesh should disqualify it from accessing preferential trading terms with the EU.
