Strategic Focus

Policy influence

We engage in the formulation of national Climate Change and environmental governance policy and programs; engaging in policy processes on domestication of international environment agreements; contributing to governmental input to regional and global policy on CC and environmental matters; and facilitating CSO participation in regional & global policy dialogue.

Public Engagement and Mobilisation

We recognize the increased demand by African citizens on their governments and inter-governmental bodies to take action on climate change and environmental issues and to implement international sustainable development agreements.

Holding Governments Accountable

We ensure that governments and inter-governmental bodies are efficiently implementing sovereign commitments to human rights in the context of environmental and climate governance. Government accountability will be achieved through: compliance scorecards; monitoring achievement of environmental and climate governance; and training CSOs on compliance monitoring.
