Since 1992, the NGO Max Havelaar France - registered as an association under the law of 1901 - has been working to develop fair trade that respects both human rights and the environment. It advocates for an ethical and responsible global economy. With the Fairtrade/Max Havelaar label, it mobilizes companies, citizens-consumers and public authorities in France to ensure better remuneration and decent working conditions for farmers and salaried workers in developing countries. Max Havelaar France is a founding member of the international fair trade movement Fairtrade/Max Havelaar.
In late 2019, CartONG and Max Havelaar France signed their first one-year partnership agreeement.
In the framework of this partnership, the support to MHF consisted in 2020 of coaching and training the Côte d’Ivoire team on their adoption of the ONA tool for Mobile Data Collection following on the 2019 pilot mission by CartONG, working on a video to present their use of MDC, and also supporting MHF and FTI on the reflexion on their approach and capacity building in relation to data.
