Organization Overview

Solidaridad brings together supply chain actors and engages them in innovative solutions to improve production, ensuring the transition to a sustainable and inclusive economy that maximizes the benefit for all.

Solidaridad works on creating sustainable supply chains from the producer to the consumer. This enables producers in developing countries to get a better price for better products and it helps to preserve people's environment.

Sustainable water management is an important topic in the majority of our programmes - which range from sustainable agriculture and food security, to sustainable textile wet processing and mining.
