COEXIST is an incubator that relies on a community of skills and expertise to support the diversity of NGO-business partnerships or to be supported in the development of these NGO-business partnerships. It was set up with some sixty actors (NGOs, companies, consultancies and research institutes) on 6 February 2020.
At the heart of this initiative, ENDA will participate in the Forum on 13 October 2020 to share its community experience built around solidarity and sharing.
