Capacity Strengthening

Each year, BCI hosts an event for its field-level Implementing Partners who provide training on more sustainable practices to millions of cotton farmers worldwide.

The annual Implementing Partner Meeting enables BCI’s partners to come together to share best practices in sustainable farming, learn from one another, be inspired by innovations in the field and the market, collaborate and engage in valuable networking.

Across four days in January 2021, more than 100 of BCI’s partners from 18 countries will gather for the first virtual edition of the event. The theme this year is Climate Change Mitigation and Adaption, and sessions will focus on topics such as gender and climate, financing climate action, soil health, restoring degraded areas and commitments to action.

BCI partners will be joined by BCI staff and sustainability experts from Solidaridad, Helvetas, WWF, Forum for the Future, Rainforest Alliance, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), PAN-UK, Care International, the Foundation for Ecological Security, and the Sustainable Agriculture Network.

On the final day of the event, partners will reflect on Covid-19 adaptations and learnings from 2020 and explore how to best prepare for the future.

Highlights and key learnings from the 2021 meeting will be shared following the event. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].

BCI’s 2021 Virtual Implementing Partner Meeting is officially sponsored by Interactio.
