The Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA) is a continental coalition of Civil Society Organizations from diverse backgrounds in Africa. Founded in 2008, the Pan African Climate Justice Alliance has emerged as the most vibrant and largest Civil Society platform in climate change and sustainable development, with a membership of more than 1000 organizations and networks.
The Alliance brings together Faith-based Organizations, Community-based organizations, Non-Governmental organizations, Trusts, Foundations, Farmers and Pastoralist Groups among other sectors.

PACJA through the Deepening Democracy Program (DDP) funded by DAI is spearheading the implementation of the Angaza Project (Strengthening CSO Advocacy for Improved Climate Change Governance in Kenya) running from August 2017. The Angaza project aims at strengthening civil society for improved engagement in climate change governance in Kenya. The Angaza project has a national reach covering all geographical areas and sectors of the Kenyan economy and specifically targets three objectives;

 

  • To catalyse and facilitate civil society and broader citizen participation in the implementation of the National Climate Change Act, 2016, review of the National Climate Change Action Plan (2018-2022), Implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions and Influence the National Climate Change Council.
  • To track and monitor climate financing to ensure National Budget allocated for climate change and other climate finance streams meet the needs of the most vulnerable communities at the frontline of climate change impacts.
  • To solidify gains achieved in the coordination of diverse groups aimed at consolidating a unified civil society voice in national climate change policy dialogues and interventions.

 

The Momentum Committee facilitated by PACJA brings together various networks (Youth, Indigenous groups, Faith based networks, gender) and sector specific civil society organizations (Water, Agriculture, etc) ensure that their issues are championed in the climate change policy space. Through the Momentum Committee, the technical expertise within the Thematic Working groups and which this project also strives to enhance will also enhance individual organizations capacity to implement their key focus areas. At the end of this project it is envisaged that the Momentum Committee will evolve into an acceptable platform bringing together civil society groups from all thematic and sectoral orientations to drive climate people-centred issues in the broader climate governance arena.
