Senegal South Africa

Darou Rahma - Eco-village Project
C'est un village de 1500 habitants situé au Sénégal à 50 km de la ville de Saint-Louis ( classée patrimoine de l'humanité). est dans une zone aride et sèche. Depuis quelques années maintenant le manque d'eau est devenu le problème majeur. Cela empêche les populations d'exercer l'agriculture, leur activité principale et seule source de leurs revenus. Les consequences: un exode massif des jeunes vers la capitale, Dakar, dont le nombre d'habitants à quadruplé ces trente dernières années. The Foundation for GAIA has supported this project since 2007. Ongoing and hopefully with renewed impetus for 2010.

Civicus World Alliance for Citizen Participation, South Africa

CIVICUS: World Alliance for Citizen Participation is an international alliance of members and partners which constitute an influential network of organisations at the local, national, regional and international levelsCIVICUS is working  to strengthen citizen action and civil society throughout the world. CIVICUS has a vision of a global community of active, engaged citizens committed to the creation of a more just and equitable world. This is premised on the belief that the health of societies exists in direct proportion to the degree of balance between the state, the private sector and civil society. CIVICUS provides a focal point for knowledge-sharing, common interest representation, global institution-building and engagement among these disparate sectors. It acts as an advocate for citizen participation as an essential component of governance and democracy worldwide.

E-Civicus Vita de Waal reflects on the responsibility of industrialised nations to make good on financial support to developing nations following the financial crisis.
