Since our workshop at the IAPB Council of Members meeting in Dar es Salaam October 2019, and the drafting of this Guide, the world has changed unrecognizably. Most countries affected by the COVID-19 pandemic have either been through or are in lockdown as a response. Global air traffic has seen an unprecedented decline. And health systems across the world have diverted most of their resources to manage the outbreak, resulting in an almost universal suspension of crucial eye health services such as cataract surgeries and distribution of glasses.
So here we are in Atlanta, Georgia at the SPLC summit to talk about ISO20400.org and tell everyone why we needed a free global website to spread the word about sustainable procurement and it's benefits to the environment, economy and social value. Some 197 countries around the world have already accessed our website and every state in the US too. Bonus ! Can't wait to meet everyone. If you have any questions please message us.
