Africa is one of the most endowed continents. With the vast resources, Africa should be one of the most developed continents in the world. Since 1977, ARSO has been translating every African‛s desire for sustainability into practical actions and positive results through standards. These Award competitions are platforms to promote competition and encourage Africa‛s youth, SMEs, farmers and manufacturers to share their testimonies, experiences and dreams and tell the world how standards contribute to sustainable development
