On 21 May, the Southern Voices Capacity Building Programme launched a new report, “Southern Voices on Climate Policy Choices – analysis of and lessons learned from civil society advocacy on climate change,” in Bonn, Germany. The report considers advocacy groups’ ability to influence climate change policy at the international, regional, national and local levels. It is based on more than 70 case studies and considers civil society's impact on legislation, policy and implementation.
The report includes contributions from more than 20 networks, and their members, of the Southern Voices Programme and was edited by Dr Hannah Reid of the International Institute of Environment and Development and a team of Southern Voices experts. It is published by the Climate Capacity Consortium.
The full report, along with summaries in French, Spanish and English, can be downloaded here.
