From 26 to 28 October 2020, the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) in cooperation with the Service Agency Communities in One World (SKEW) welcomed around 150 international experts to a virtual dialogue on sustainable public procurement.
After extensive revision, a detailed documentation is now available. Summaries of speeches and discussions as well as the slide sets of the presentations provide a deep insight into the event, even for those who could not attend. This documentation aims at providing a good overview of the state of the discussion. Procurement officers and experts from Germany, Europe as well as Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa spent three days exchanging views on current topics such as e-procurement, purchasing pools and communication for sustainable public procurement. You can now find the most important results of this exchange here: https://blogs.die-gdi.de/2021/01/26/digital-dialogue-forum-on-sustainable-public-procurement-2020-e-procurement-market-dialogue-and-joint-procurement-as-drivers-for-spp/
The next Dialogue Forum on Sustainable Public Procurement will take place this year in a digital format again, probably from 27 to 30 September 2021. Registrations are accepted by Tim Stoffel (firstname.lastname@example.org).
