About SIGGS

Good governance is increasingly becoming a core topic for sport organisations at all levels. There are plenty of reasons to explain this trend, including the pressure on the proper use of public funds as well as the responsibilities of sport organisations towards their sports and other stakeholders.

About FOODSECURE

Sustainable food security is one of the most pressing issues in the world. The number of people on our planet is growing. Agriculture has to produce more food on less resource. Furthermore, farmers are facing increasingly volatile and integrated markets for both input and output.
