Part of the project pursues these objectives through the lens of the public procurement of food, with a goal of developing recommendations and showcasing good practices for establishing and maintaining farmer-inclusive, sustainable food procurement approaches. To this end, it is important to identify and highlight the challenges that farmers face when engaging with public customers.
COCOREADO sets and explores two types of innovative initiatives: novel and fair food systems (NOFAs) and sustainable public procurement of food (PROCURs) initiatives. For each of these two types of initiatives (NOFAs and PROCURs) separate frameworks for selection, evaluation and replicability assessment were developed.
The gathering of a long list of innovative initiatives is aimed to form the basis for selection of short-listed 10-15 initiatives which will be evaluated for good practices in the following steps of the COCOREADO project. These good practices should provide insights about the success and failure factors of the initiatives. Next. these good practices will be assessed for their replicability to provide context-specific recommendations.
This document aims to detail the approach developed for the selection process of the final list of NOFAs, as well as the good practices identified and the respective success factors
The work of this report has contributed to the understanding of good measures that are already being taken but also revealed several challenges that should be of focus when trying to increase the sustainability of public procurement. An overview of the challenges faced by small-scale producers aspiring to participate in public tenders is provided. These challenges collectively limit the participation of small-scale producers in public procurement
The first ambassador training was held on the 28th of March to the 30th of March as a live event in Brussels. The first training had a focus on selection of a shortlist of NOFAs by the ambassadors for future analysis by the project. This report of the feedback on the initiatives covers the process of data collection, feedback from the ambassadors, overall satisfaction of the training and recommendations for future trainings.
The second ambassador training was held from the 10th of October to the 12th of October 2022 as a live event in Pamplona. It had a focus on the collaboration model. This report provides an overview of the processes leading to the training and an assessment of the activities ambassadors were engaged in during the training.
