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.
The "Strengthening CSOs' Information Management" project aims to professionalize French-speaking Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in the use and implementation of methods, tools and processes related to the different stages of the data analysis chain.
Co-financed by AFD for 3 years (early 2020 - late 2022) and implemented with the support of 10 partners, this project will make it possible for CartONG to continue its work in support of the sector by promoting the pooling and dissemination of new resources, both practical (tools, tutorials, training modules, etc.) and strategic (studies, etc.) to all humanitarian and development actors.Read more »
In 2021, Max Haavelaar France and CartONG worked together in developping and testing IM tools within the framework of the "Strengthening CSOs' Information Management" project co-funded by AFD. In particular, work was done on the Program data self-assessment methodology (available in French here) as part of the revision of the IM structure of Max Havelaar France, a process that will continue in 2022."
In late 2019, CartONG and Max Havelaar France signed their first one-year partnership agreeement. This agreement is automatically renewed from one year to another.
In 2020, the support to Max Havelaar France consisted of coaching and training the Côte d’Ivoire team on their adoption of the ONA tool for Mobile Data Collection following the 2019 pilot mission by CartONG. We also produced a video to present their use of MDC, and also supported Max Havelaar France and FairTrade International on the reflection on their approach and capacity building in relation to data.
