This report reflects the progress made by BBP in 2009; the stories are selected to present our results in terms of delivering the planned programme activities.
Some of the highlights in 2009 were the signing of new agreements with Nespresso and WBCSD. We also continued to pursue negotiations with Rio Tinto, which included four site visits and a two day wrap up meeting where we discussed opportunities and risks of the potential collaboration. Most importantly, we decided to focus on developing framework papers on Agriculture, Mining, tourism and SMEs to better guide our work with the private sector in the coming years. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding this report or our programme in general, please don't' hesitate to contact us.
