Finnpartnership’s mission is to increase commercial cooperation and promote business partnerships between companies in Finland and in developing countries and hence help to achieve positive developmental effects in developing countries. Finnpartnership offers Business Partnership Support funding for the planning, development and training phases of a project. Supporting the sustainability of the Business Partnership Support projects is a crucial part of Finnpartnership’s work.

It is vitally important for the overall feasibility of a project to take social and environmental sustainability into account at the very beginning of project planning.

Finnpartnership is now in the process of deepening the knowledge on the social and human rights issues of the granted projects and via this aims to further support sustainability of the projects. For this reason, Finnpartnership is searching for human rights consultants who will support the selected projects on social and human rights aspects. The human rights consultancy voucher will be offered for granted projects which are considered to possibly have higher risks related to the social/human rights issues. Key deliverable of the consultancy is a final report that gives concrete guidance for the applicant in managing applicant’s project-relevant social and human rights related risks.

Please see the attachment Call for proposals for Finnpartnership’s human rights consultancy voucher for more details about the call and the voucher consultant qualifications. Send your offer latest by 5t of June 2020 to fp@finnpartnership.fi.
