EU SWITCH projects supporting products and services from Asian, African and MENA region: Micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises

The Network Facilities of the EU SWITCH programmes in Asia, Africa and the MENA region, plus the SWITCH-to-Green Facility, showcased products and services created by micro-, small and medium-sized enterprises and communities with support from SWITCH projects promoting sustainable consumption and production. Projects presented products and services with increased sustainability, on which the artisans' and their families' livelihood rests, ranging from handcrafted textiles and rattan furniture of outstanding design to delicious food products. To increase interactivity with visitors, women artisans provided a live demonstration of the traditional crafting of selected products and answer questions on the sustainability of production.
