Event description

Description

Bonsucro Technical Week is Bonsucro’s flagship training event, bringing together mills and change enablers for a week-long event aimed at increasing knowledge of the Bonsucro certification systems, connecting with peers and introducing new tools and resources. Last year we held Technical Weeks in Brazil, Thailand, Swaziland, Mexico, India and Colombia, which were attended by 231 participants from 26 countries.

Agenda Description:

Day 1 + 2 - Training on Bonsucro: This will cover all principles of the Bonsucro Production Standard as well as practical sessions like "How to write effective Health and Safety Management Plans" and "How to Implement Bonsucro Standards - Conducting Gap Assessments".

Day 3 - Field Visit: Day will be spent conducting a technical field visit to a sugar mill and farmland, which have been working on implementing the Bonsucro Production Standard in their operations. These visits are designed to highlight the work they have been carrying out and sharing experiences in adapting to the changes and benefits of the implementation.

Day 4 - Tools and Resources: This day will cover tools to assist producers and enablers to improve sustainability practices as well as achieve Bonsucro Certification.
The morning will be dedicated to Bonsucro Connect: our new online tool that enables users to demonstrate and monitor sustainability through visualisation of sustainability performance, live benchmarking against peers, and facilitation of data collection and auditing.
The afternoon will be dedicated to exploring the nascent Bonsucro Smallholder Standard, a new standard that places smallholders at its heart and enables smallholders to take advantage of what sustainability standards have to offer.

Day 5 - Learning from Peers: The morning will be spent learning from 4 participants of the DFID funded project LEGEND. Following on, discussions will be centered on regional issues facing producers and what collaborative actions are happening across the region. The afternoon will finish with an optional visit to L'Aventure du Sucre – a Museum dedicated to the history of sugarcane in Mauritius.
