STRENGTHENING OF LOCAL CIVIL SOCIETY ACTORS
THEMATIC PROGRAM OVERVIEWBackground & History: CARE believes the strengthening of civil society actors is key to reaching more vulnerable communities and sustaining efforts into the future. CARE has helped start up and support a number of local non-governmental agencies based in northern provinces whose focus is on micro-finance and service delivery to extremely vulnerable communities. In addition, CARE works with other local partners and networks to influence decisions made around natural resource management and within the extractive industries.
Current Programs: The ongoing DANIDA funded PACT (Parcerias a Aliancas da sociedad Civil pelo direito a Terra e aos recursos naturais) program contributes to the following objetives:
- Mozambican civil society organizations and platforms and coalitions targeted by the sub-program able to articulate and promote clear and legitimate individual as well as collective advocacy agendas on inclusive pro-poor land, natural resources and rural livelihood issues, utilizing invited and claimed spaces and where relevant regional and international fora and instruments.
- Civil society organizations and platforms targeted at provincial and district levels (with initial focused on Nampula and Cabo Delgado) linked to national civil society organizations and platforms and able to secure the inclusion of relevant issues in national civil society advocacy and carry out advocacy at provincial level.
