Deadline: 31 December 2018
Through the Action 24 Small Grant Facility, Food and Trees for Africa (FTFA), the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) and the South Durban Community Environmental Alliance (SDCEA) are looking to support local initiatives that aim to engage with the South African Legislature, i.e. the Provincial Parliaments and/or the Parliament of South Africa, to address specific environmental or climate change related issues.
The ambition is to broaden public participation in environmental governance, by supporting local civil society organisations in Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo and the Western Cape in their efforts to get involved in law-making and oversight on environmental issues that affect them and the communities they work in.
