We engage in the formulation of national Climate Change and environmental governance policy and programs; engaging in policy processes on domestication of international environment agreements; contributing to governmental input to regional and global policy on CC and environmental matters; and facilitating CSO participation in regional & global policy dialogue.

We recognize the increased demand by African citizens on their governments and inter-governmental bodies to take action on climate change and environmental issues and to implement international sustainable development agreements.

We ensure that governments and inter-governmental bodies are efficiently implementing sovereign commitments to human rights in the context of environmental and climate justice. Government accountability will be achieved through: compliance scorecards; monitoring achievement of environmental and climate justice; and training CSOs on compliance monitoring.

Research and knowledge Through building dynamic research functionality for targeted research that supports PACJA’s advocacy agenda; enhanced monitoring of outcomes of PACJA’s interventions; and invigorated communication mechanisms and approaches to ensure the energies, expertise and outreach of its membership confirm the adage, ‘the whole is greater than the sum of its parts’.

A cohesive, member-responsive, and effective civil society platform capable of responding to a dynamic socio-political and ecological environment.

PACJA uses an approach that integrates research, advocacy, partnerships development, capacity building and awareness creation to successfully deliver its strategic mandate,

Advocacy comprises the core business of PACJA. The Alliance undertakes evidence-based advocacy aimed at improving the policy and laws on natural resources management. The research work that PACJA supports, the partnerships it develops and the capacities it strengthens are all supportive of the advocacy function.

Local communities that are key custodians of natural resources remain vulnerable to climate change, have low adaptive capacity and lack sufficient capacity in the sustainable management of natural resources. PACJA mobilizes and coordinates capacity building efforts targeting the community and other key stakeholders.

PACJA recognizes the knowledge and information gap in society about climate change, larger environmental and natural resources values and threats. PACJA uses a comprehensive knowledge management approach in creating awareness on effective climate/environmental threat coping mechanism and wise use of natural resources.

PACJA supports and facilitates research to generate new information and knowledge that is both used internally to support climate resilience-building, natural resources management, making the same available to other stakeholders for use in a variety of ways.

PACJA recognizes the importance of developing and sustaining strategic partnerships. The Alliance continues to identify and strengthen partnerships with a variety of stakeholders ranging from small community support groups, religious organizations, civil society organizations, private businesses, government institutions and international networks.
