The African Climate Reality Project is inviting proposals for a situation analysis of public participation in the legislative sector

As part of its new project on public participation in the legislative sector, ACRP and its project partners are seeking the services of a Contractor to carry out a situation analysis of the current public participation mechanisms and processes of the Parliament of South Africa and the Provincial Legislatures of Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo and the Western Cape.

Request for proposals

On 1st of January 2018, the African Climate Reality Project represented by Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA) in collaboration with the Ekurhuleni Environmental Organisation, the South African Institute of International Affairs and the South Durban Community Environmental Alliance (“the implementing organisations”) launched a 30-month project aimed at enhancing civil society participation in environmental governance in South Africa. The project focuses on improving public engagement in law-making and legislative oversight on matters pertaining to sustainability, climate resilience and a just transition to a low-carbon future, paying special attention to youth and women participation. It targets the National Parliament and four Provincial Legislatures: Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal, Limpopo and the Western Cape.
