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. 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.
