EHPEA – bbw PARTNERSHIP
The International Division of bbw gGmbH implements development projects in the field of organizational development and vocational training worldwide. A project fact finding mission took place in July 2017 in Ethiopia and identified the key fields of cooperation for a BMO partnership project between bbw and EHPEA. Upon successful implementation of the first phase (Nov 2017-Dec 2020), the project has received approval to pursue the second phase (Jan 2021-Dec 2023).
The partnership with EHPEA focuses on strengthening the management and internal processes to enable the association to be a strong advocate of the sectors’ interests as well as to deliver innovative services corresponding to member needs and future market trends. This includes:
Implementation of a consistent business-oriented approach: sustainable income generation and strengthening performance capacity
Establishment of a professional knowledge management including an IT-based knowledge management system
Further development of new services and of the EHPEA training center (special attention to the fields of digitalization and innovation)
Taking on the role as an influential representative for the sector: e.g. implementation of CSR measures by EHPEA and their member farms, dissemination of good CSR practice
The project is developed under the framework of the partnership program of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and counts on financial support from BMZ via SEQUA gGmbH.
