Priority theme(s)



Consortium partners can submit a grant application for an institutional collaboration project to improve occupational health and safety, increasing access to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in the Ready Made Garment sector (RMG). In the current discussions around living wages and better workplace policies, SRHR remains a neglected aspect.

This can be a Dutch institution for secondary and higher vocational or academic education; or a national or local knowledge institution or organisation (knowledge institution, ministries, national commissions or non-governmental organisation) in Bangladesh that contributes to capacity development in the area of higher and vocational education within the local priorities as set out in the CPI.
