Title: Technical Assistance to Rwanda Private Sector Organisations and Civil Society

Project Location: Rwanda

TradeMark East Africa (TMEA), a not for profit organisation which aims to promote regional trade and economic integration in East Africa, has signed a contract with Enabling Environments to provide technical assistance to the Private Sector and Civil Society in Rwanda.

The objective of the technical assistance was to support the Rwanda private sector and civil society organisations in strengthening its position in areas of research, advocacy and private-public dialogue so as to effectively represent the interests of its members.

The scope of work on the assignment was divided in three key components:

i. Mentoring and counselling for PSF Advocacy staff and technical working group members during execution of advocacy activity plans;
ii. Research on selected advocacy topics. These may include but are not limited to: quality infrastructure and standards management, international trade, export, mutual recognition agreements, logistics and transportation services, professional services, trade negotiations, policy analysis, taxation and gender in trade;
iii. Technical support on the implementation and monitoring of advocacy platforms activity plans.

Enabling Environments’ team was made up of two main experts, supported by several local, regional and international experts.
