The African Activists for Climate Change (AACJ) Project is a five-year programme funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The programme is implemented in eight African countries: Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Mozambique, Senegal, Somalia and South Africa. The SAYCCC is a partner organization in implementing this project in South Africa.
This project is designed to specifically advance and protect the rights, participation and engagement of women, girls and youth in all their diversities as a standalone work stream. AACJ commits to mainstream gender in all pathways and at all stages of project design, management and evaluation. It is about building movements to fight for climate justice across Africa. knowledge generated and shared through the MEL system will empower movements with data, stories, narratives and knowledge to use as evidence to advocate for change, while also demonstrating the programme’s added value, successes, lessons learned and challenges faced.
