Action 4SD

Conscious of the need to build a broad-based movement and of the need to strike an effective balance between pausing to draw lessons and retaining the momentum, the following four global civil society networks have agreed to work together to oversee the next steps in building this new global platform on sustainable development:

  • CIVICUS is the world alliance for citizen participation which has members in more than 170 countries and has incubated previous initiatives such as action/2015 and GCAP.
  • Climate Action Network International (CAN) is a worldwide network of over 950 NGOs in over 110 countries working to promote government and individual action to limit human-induced climate change to ecologically sustainable levels.
  • Global Call to Action Against Poverty (GCAP) is a global civil society movement calling for an end to poverty and inequality, with national coalitions in 85 countries and regional coordination in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Caribbean and Europe.
  • International Forum of National NGO Platforms (IFP/FIP) is a network of 64 national development NGO platforms and 6 regional NGO coalitions from 5 continents.

There is also a Facilitation Group that provides an advisory role to Action4SD´s host organisations and the Working Groups to ensure programs and strategies stay on track. The group is ultimately responsible for implementing programmatic activities at the regional level.

This coalition organises op regular basis webinars.
