Strengthening civil society for healthier forests in the Mekong region - project brochure

January 2017

Non-state actors (NSAs), particularly civil society, play a fundamental role in strengthening governance. However, despite some advancements in recent years, they face many challenges including the fact that they are often not recognized or effectively engaged as equal partners in forest and/or governance processes -- due to a lack of participatory processes in policy making; capacity of the NSAs to effectively participate in dialogues and exchanges with state and private actors; and a lack of appropriate data to strengthen forest governance. In recognition of this, the European Union is supporting the project ‘Strengthening NSAs’ voices for improved forest governance in the Mekong region’.
