Call for Proposals
This call seeks to advance civic technology and digital engagement across Africa, strengthening democratic governance and citizen participation in continental institutions. It invites prospective applicants to collaborate with AU-ECOSOCC in refining and enhancing their digital engagement strategy.
Democratic Governance in Africa
The AGA has been an essential platform in facilitating thematic dialogues among different stakeholders and in expanding spaces for input from previously marginalised groups such as the youth and women in as far as regional policy making on democracy and governance is concerned. It is for this reason that a vibrant and sustained relationship between civil society and AGA remains an important plank to ensuring that a people-driven Africa is realized. This call seeks to support civil society to address problems of democratic governance (at a national or multinational level) with the primary focus of feeding into relevant policy processes of the AGA platform or to enable strengthened participation of citizens and/or collaboration between civic initiatives and AGA organs. More specifically, it will enable the deployment of civic technology to strengthen democratic governance, structuring their interventions in a way that allows their own and/or citizens’ engagement with members of the AGA platform.
Democracy Works Foundation is hosting an in person dialogue in Lusaka, Zambia. RSVP via email by 22 June to attend.
