Join our Introduction to Aid Funded Business (AFB) webinar to better understand how to do business with the UN and Multi-Lateral Development Banks (MDBs) from DIT’s dedicated network of advisers.

The global humanitarian and development sector allows unique commercial opportunities for UK companies to win overseas business from worldwide aid funded agency programmes. There are many opportunities for businesses covering a wide range of sectors from manufacturing to professional services.

In 2020, the United Nations (UN) alone spent $19.9 billion on goods and services. This figure doesn’t include the other procurement opportunities, managed and delivered through the numerous MDBs.

About this webinar

This introductory webinar will provide a unique learning experience, helping you build your knowledge and understanding of the opportunities and routes into the humanitarian and development sector.

You will better understand the procurement systems/processes, learn how to identify projects and tenders, understand the funding available at the UN and MDBs and how best to introduce yourselves to this alternative route to market.

Working with DIT’s AFB network of advisers will provide you with the right tools and knowledge to best approach and work in the humanitarian and development sector.
