National Commodity Platforms
"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them"
The Platform creates a long-term neutral space where the stakeholders can align, take ownership and develop a joint concrete action plan necessary to transform the country commodity sector. National stakeholders typically include government, domestic and international business, producers, producers’ organizations, labour unions, industry associations, financial institutions, NGO’s and research institutions. The Platform Chair is typically a high level government official such as a Minister or Vice-Minister, chosen by the government. GCP supports the creation and the development of the Platform from consensus building to the definition of A National Action Plan for the commodity and then facilitated its implementation.
