What is "In Motion"?
“In Motion” is an international methodology, developed and successfully applied by UNDP in many countries affected by natural disasters. It seeks to boost productive capacities and broaden market reach for micro and small enterprises by supporting them in innovating traditional business models, improving business infrastructure and strengthening their commercial image.
The methodology was piloted with 15 micro enterprises in the Municipality of Durrës in the aftermath of the November 2019 earthquake, facilitating their reopening through grants for the purchase of damaged equipment.
What is the Supplier Development Methodology?
The “Supplier Development Methodology” (SDM) is a method of productive chains with a business and social approach, which aims to improve and transform business relationships in a value chain between a lead company (a large or medium-sized enterprise) and its suppliers (micro, small or medium enterprises).
SDM has been designed by UNDP and successfully implemented in twelve countries over a fifteen-year period, proving to work well in basic as well as advanced industrial sectors. International, well-known brands such as Nestlé, Nike, Zara, Bombardier as well as small and medium-sized companies in the food, apparel, footwear, tourism, automotive and agriculture sectors have trusted and worked successfully to improve performance in their value chains through SDM.
