Civil Society Engagement in Environmental Policy Processes

CEPA with financial support from the Tilitonse Fund implemented a three-year project titled ‘Civil Society Engagement in Environmental Policy Processes’. The project commenced in October 2012 and ran until September 2015. The project‘s goal was to ensure environmental governance in Malawi is more inclusive and accountable.

The project concept was developed on the premise that civil society is strategically positioned to promote social inclusion because of interface with grassroots and flexible approaches to delivery of interventions. This provides the opportunity for identifying and responding to people's needs. In addition, there is an increasing recognition that civil society organization (CSO) engagement in policy processes and informed advocacy can lead to greater pro-poor impacts and contribute to government accountability. Civil society engagement in policy processes has the potential to lead to improved well-being and empowerment of vulnerable groups and communities by providing a voice for the marginalized society.
