Open contracting 2017: #OCGlobal17, Amsterdam, 28 & 29 November

Open contracting is one of the most exciting areas in modernizing government, fighting corruption, reforming markets and fostering business innovation and entrepreneurship. Better, smarter and fairer government contracting will have a huge impact on citizens’ lives everywhere. 

Idea Jam is an integral part of the Social Entrepreneurship Support Initiative, a six-month pilot project spearheaded by Hivos and Coworkinc aiming to support social entrepreneurs through capacity building. Started in February, Hivos and Coworkinc will conduct Idea Jam “pressure cooker” sessions and pop-up consultation hours at Coworkinc on a monthly basis.

The vast majority of women work in informal sectors, and we are seeing an increasing feminisation of labour migration, both of which raise opportunities as well as challenges for women’s economic empowerment. With this year's theme, Women’s economic empowerment in the changing world of work, the 61st session of the Commission on the Status of Women (CSW61) is the moment to give voice to migrant women in domestic work and women at the low end of value chains, like horticulture.

On International Women's Day 2017, Hivos celebrates the achievements of our programmes and partners in driving change for women and helping accelerate gender parity across the world. Together we are creating a gender inclusive green society, where women and men have equal access to – and control over - renewable energy and sufficient, nutritious and affordable food.

Hivos and Greenpeace Netherlands, together with indigenous groups from the Amazon rainforest, are launching a new campaign against deforestation. The programme, All Eyes on the Amazon, has been made possible thanks to a 14.8 million euro contribution from the Dutch National Postcode Lottery’s Dream Fund.

Hivos and ARTICLE 19 are currently seeking proposals for its global programme on Open Contracting Data that builds the capacity of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), media, entrepreneurs or social-start-ups in analyzing public contracting data,

for lobby and advocacy purposes.

Open Contracting Data programme stresses need for citizen engagement

Hivos believes that all women and girls should have control over their lives and be able to actively participate in social, political and economic spheres, so we work tirelessly with various human rights instruments in support of communities’ and countries’ efforts towards gender equality.
