ZABALA Innovation Consulting will be presenting two examples of the implementation of the Due Diligence the next 18th of October in the Info Point hosted by the Commission's Directorate General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO)

In the last edition of the European Development Days, DG DEVCO considered of great interest the case study of Colombia as example of collaboration among the public-private sector and the respect to the human rights of the indigenous people. ZABALA innovation Consulting will be presenting this success story, and another experience in Namibia (Africa) as two great examples of the implementation of the Due Diligence on the 18th of October at the Info Point (Rue de la Loi, 43, Brussels) hosted by the Commission's Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO).

Attendees will have the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the best practices carried out by private companies that wanted to develop this approach in third countries, in collaboration with public authorities, local and indigenous communities and development agencies.

Registrations

Registrations for the session organized by DG DEVCO are now open through Eventbrite.

Mikel Berraondo, Social Innovation Director for ZABALA Innovation Consulting and expert on Human Rights and Rights of Indigenous Peoples for the United Nations, will be one of the speakers of the conference. He has been working in the field during the last 20 years, with the most relevant international organizations that defend a new business environment based on the Sustainable Development Goals.

During the event, he will showcase how business activities (that have often been a source of conflicts and Human Rights violations) can be turned into win-win relationships under the umbrella of Due Diligence in Business and Human Rights. ZABALA will present two success stories on the implementation of this principle in Africa (Namibia) and Latin America (Colombia), in which private companies, public sector and local communities are building new exchange models for the mutual benefit that boost local economies.
