Developing Lobbying Strategies for Mainstreaming Sustainable Land Management into Development Planning and Policy
The Environmental Monitoring Group (EMG), a NGO that promotes environmental justice and civil society engagement with environmental issues, is hosting a workshop entitled “Developing Lobbying Strategies for Mainstreaming Sustainable Land Management into Development Planning and Policy” from 15-16 October 2008 in Cape Town.
The workshop is aimed at
To create an opportunity for members of civil society to identify areas of common interest relating to desertification, land degradation and sustainable land management
To provide participants with practical theory and appropriate methods for lobbying, and enable them to plan how to apply these with the support of a skilled facilitator
To develop lobbying strategies and plans for ensuring that appropriate consideration is given to concerns regarding sustainable land management and livelihoods in development planning and policy development
The cost of the workshop (including shared accommodation and meals) is R1,668 per person, while the daily rate (including teas and lunch) is R259 per person per day.
EMG will be able to sponsor a limited number of delegates who are willing to share accommodation. We will allocate places on the basis of need and on a first-come, first-serve basis. However, we will limit the number of delegates from each organisation to a maximum of two.
EMG also has a limited budget for travel for delegates who require sponsorship. EMG will allocate the budget on a needs basis.
