On October 20th, 2017 the Learning Lab will host a workshop in Nairobi, Kenya, bringing together relevant stakeholders to explore ways to operationalize the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the Sustainable Development Goals in Africa through public procurement laws, policies, and practices. The workshop will provide a brief introduction to the procurement process and relevant international and regional frameworks, which will be followed by in-depth discussions on two key themes: public procurement of private military and security services and public procurement and sustainable development.
The concept note for the workshop is available here. The agenda and other details will be posted closer to the date of the workshop.
