The next edition of the INA Lunchbreak is dedicated to the topic: Due Diligence Fund 

In this issue, we present our "Due Diligence Fund" (DDF), which started its second round in November with a new Call for Proposals and is open until 19 February 2023. The DDF was launched in spring against the backdrop of the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act (LkSG) as part of the Initiative for Sustainable Agricultural Supply Chains (INA). 

In the first round, six projects were selected for funding by the Fund. These include a project that promotes greater transparency and traceability within a cotton supply chain in Pakistan. Another example is a joint database for risk analysis of spices and herbs of a company with producers in numerous countries in Asia, Africa and South America.

In the upcoming INA lunch break, a first field report on the project "Development of an inter-company complaint mechanism for the cocoa sector in Côte d'Ivoire" will be presented, which is funded by the first round of the DDF. In addition, Johannes Luderich (INA) will present the conditions for participation in the next round of the Fund. Of course, we will allow enough time for your questions afterwards.

As usual, the one-hour online meeting will take place on the first Friday of the month. 

The date is 02.12.2022 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm. 

Please note that the meeting language is German
