EIF sPokes

 

About the Project

Through the EIF sPokes project, CUTS International designed and piloted a capacity-building module for EIF National Implementation Units who wish to improve the participation of Non-State Actors in their activities and in trade-related public-private dialogues more generally.

The module draws from the experience gained from a pilot period of one year during which the module was implemented in Zambia, Nepal, and Burkina Faso. This helped elaborating best practices that have been compiled in the “EIF Guidebook on Effective Engagement of NSAs”.

This module will help EIF National Implementation Arrangements (NIAs), and the National Steering Committee (NSC), to drive forward a country-owned and sustainable EIF delivery by achieving inclusive participatory engagement of NSAs, particularly the private sector.

While implementing this module, NIUs will undertake a range of activities that will culminate in the collaborative development of a roadmap to address country-specific challenges to NSAs engagement in the EIF and similar initiatives. A step-by-step methodology is provided as part of the module and includes stakeholder mapping, outreach, assessment, and engaging them in a workshop towards a Roadmap.
