Swedish Delegation to the UN’s field operations in Kenya

18 Nov - 21 Nov Kenya

Position innovative Swedish solutions for sustainable impact in UN field operations within Eastern Africa

The UN offers an export market worth USD 18,8 billion but despite the demand being well matched to Swedish competencies, Swedish companies hold a surprisingly small share of the organization’s procurement globally. The significant business opportunities in supplying the UN’s field-based operations in Eastern Africa include: water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), sustainable energy, health care and ICT solutions.

The UN offers an export market worth USD 18,8 billion but despite the demand being well matched to Swedish competencies, Swedish companies hold a surprisingly small share of the organization’s procurement globally. The significant business opportunities in supplying the UN’s field-based operations in Eastern Africa include: water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), sustainable energy, health care and ICT solutions.

To position Swedish solutions or identify business opportunities within the UN field operations in the Eastern Africa region, there is an increasing importance to understand local needs and challenges in the field. Furthermore, it is essential to better understand how innovative solutions can meet UN requirements and contribute to solving complex challenges in UN field operations in a sustainable way.

To this end, Business Sweden would like to invite innovative Swedish companies to a three-day UN field delegation from 18th to 21st November 2019 to take place in Nairobi and Turkana County, which hosts Kakuma Refugee Camp and the Kalobeyei Refugee Integrated Settlement, in Kenya.

In this visit you will:

  • Obtain first-hand insight on the challenges and needs in the UN’s field operations
  • Learn from field experts on what solutions have succeeded or failed in the past and what their current needs are
  • Identify gaps in the provision of humanitarian response services and position your solutions towards key stakeholders and users
  • Learn more about existing competitors and solutions in the market
  • Have an opportunity to establish new contacts and to engage strategically with UN agencies, their implementing partners and other important stakeholders
