Last week, the Mozambican city of Pamba hosted a training seminar and dialogue on the role of corporate social responsibility. It did so at a moment in which the country is trying to manage appropriate exploitation of its recently discovered gas deposits.
More than 20 people from civil society, institutions and companies participated in the workshop, held within the framework of the cooperation programme Support for Inclusive Public Policies in Sub-Saharan Africa (APIA), which is managed jointly by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) and the FIIAPP.
The purpose of the event, which was organised in collaboration with the environmental NGO ONGAWA, was mainly to build capacities among the stakeholders in development processes with respect to corporate social responsibility practices in the province of Cabo Delgado, encourage their integration in local development strategies, and promote the application of public policies from an inclusive perspective.
During the seminar, those present showed great motivation, and there was a high degree of participation by civil society and public institutions.
The APIA programme aims to contribute to making growth in Sub-Saharan African countries inclusive and equitable to the benefit of all citizens.
