Netherlands – Programme Manager – Alliance Power of Voices (0,8 fte-1,0 fte)


Power of Voices


Introduction to the programme “Amplifying Voices for Just Climate Action”  

The five-year strategic objective of the programme is “By 2025, local civil society groups have claimed a central role as empowered innovators, facilitators and advocates of climate solutions”. Our programme is about climate justice i.e. climate change is not only an environmental problem to be addressed but also a societal challenge with ethical and human rights aspects. Hence our intention is to build wide societal support for locally shaped climate solutions through an inclusive and rights-based approach. This includes building a broad-based climate alliance at country level, bridging divides (urban-rural, gender, youth), that amplifies voices in new, unusual ways. 

In addition, we will influence policies (national, global) and financial flows (climate finance , private sector investments) in support of these locally shaped solutions.   

The programme will be implemented by an alliance of 6 organisations: WWF NL, HivosSouthSouthNorthAkina Mama wa Afrika, Shack Dwellers International, Fundación Avina  

During the 5 years’ programme period the alliance aims to increase ownership of the programme by local CSOs.  

The programme is funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the “Power of Voices” framework.
