How We Work

We articulated a viable and innovative implementation strategy to stimulate the concerted effort necessary for Inclusive and Sustainable Industrial Development (ISID) of Nigeria’s CTG value Chain. But more importantly, the implementation strategy enables ISID of the CTG value chain in line with global best practice – that is, using the RMG industry to lead the process.

The implementation strategy is structured into our four focus areas:
    • Advocacy, Awareness and Enlightenment (AAE) – to attract, engage and secure the buy-in of stakeholders directly and indirectly linked to the CTG value chain, locally and internationally to achieve ISID of the value chain.
    • Convening and Networking – to convene local and foreign stakeholders and create a platform to interact, disseminate information and share knowledge on best practices for ISID of the CTG value chain.
    • Capacity Building, Empowerment and Development – to increase productivity, build institutional and trade capacity, empower and develop through innovative initiatives to achieve ISID and global competitiveness of the CTG value chain.
    • Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation – to plan, coordinate, monitor and evaluate Clothing 360 Organization’s activities and collective activities of other stakeholders in ISID of the value chain. The focus area will also oversee the organization’s internal operation.
The focus areas are programmatic, with each one containing several initiatives and deliverables. All four are being implemented as listed, but eventually will run concurrently. The initiatives and deliverables will be realized in an inclusive and sustainable manner and through transparent and competitive processes.

Overall, our implementation strategy is holistic. It is also fast-tracked to enable Nigeria’s CTG value chain start to gain comparative and competitive advantage within 5 years – tentatively from 2018 through 2023. The value chain should start to deliver expected economic outcomes and impacts early within this period.

Through the initiatives and deliverables of our focus areas we will contribute towards achieving goal 9 of UNs new SDGs. The goal is to: “Build resilient infrastructure, promote ISID and foster innovation”.

Finally, our focus areas contribute to realizing three of the four pillars of the vision of Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade, and Investment (FMITI). The three pillars are to: implement Nigeria Industrial Revolution Plan (NIRP); Champion the cause of Nigeria’s MSMEs; and attract proactively long-term local and foreign investment.
