G4AW Towards More Impact

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Netherlands Space Office are proud to announce the Third Call of The Geodata for Agriculture and Water facility (G4AW). For this occasion NSO organises the workshop “G4AW Towards More Impact”.

Date: 17 February 2017

Location: Ministry of Foreign Affairs, The Hague, The Netherlands (Bezuidenhoutseweg 67, 2594 AC Den Haag)

The workshop aims to:

  1. Inspire and facilitate potential partnerships for the 3rd call of the G4AW programme with objectives, criteria, and timeline information
  2. Share lessons learned and good practices from G4AW projects and related themes.
  3. Discuss with project managers of the 17 ongoing G4AW projects and experts in the field of finance, gender, water productivity and service development, about chances to strengthen the projects and secure a sustainable service provision.

During this day you will learn what makes a good G4AW project, or better, what makes a sustainable service provision for smallholders. For example: What is a strong partnership? How do you bridge the last mile? What is a strong business case? How to address and incorporate gender? How do you monitor and evaluate your project? How do G4AW proposals contribute to development goals and create business opportunities?
