Civil society plays a key role in advocating for equal participation ©


June 2022

The Agents for Citizen-driven Transformation (ACT) programme is working to strengthen the system of civil society organisations (CSOs), networks and coalitions to improve their internal, external and programmatic capabilities. 

ACT supported the Coalition of Women Farmers Association (COWFA)  — a CSO network comprised of 95 per cent women farmers — to engage with relevant stakeholders to explore new opportunities to bolster inclusive livelihoods to contribute to the state’s agriculture sector. 

The case study highlights the  programme’s capacity development support to civil society to promote gender mainstreaming approaches and processes in its operations and efforts to strengthen its role as advocates of inclusive and integrative agriculture.
