Southern Voices
on Climate Change
Capacity Building Programme

December 2013

INFORSE continues to participate in the "Southern Voices" Programme to increase the capacity of NGOs to work on climate policies.
The Program's Phase 2 (2012-2014) is the continuation of the Phase 1 (2011-2012).

INFORSE East and Southern Africa are involved with the coordinator, Timothy Byakola, Climate Development Initiative, Uganda, and in West Africa activities are coordinated by Djiminingue Nanaste, ENDA, Senegal and by Ibrahim Togola, Mali Folkecenter.

INFORSE uses the programme to:

  • Increase the networking among NGOs that promote renewable energy and energy efficiency for access to energy. This is important for the necessary introduction of sustainable and affordable access to energy for all. The networking shall help increasing the knowledge as well as the advocacy capacity of the NGOs to promote the sustainable energy solutions. If you want to be involved in the INFORSE contact list and/or network, please see here.
  • Collect and coordinate NGO positions on climate mitigation and how African people and countries can participate while reducing poverty and improve their development.
  • Organise regional meetings of INFORSE members.
  • Organise national activities in selected countries.
  • Collect cases with good practices in promoting renewable energy and energy efficiency for increased energy access, both cases on policy initiatives and cases on actual better access to energy. The cases will be used for inspiration of NGOs as well as for advocating better conditions for the increased use sustainable energy to increase access to energy.

For contacts to the project, contact INFORSE Coordinators and Focal Points.

The programme is made by a consortium of five Danish NGOs, Climate Action Network and IIED. It is coordinated by CARE Denmark and funded by the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA). INFORSE activities also include INFORSE-Africa, INFORSE-South Asia, INFORSE-Europe, and the Danish INFORSE member "Sustainable Energy".
