The Green Forum Latin America Programme includes partners in Guatemala and Bolivia. The programme focuses on capacity strengthening of parties, organizations, marginalized groups and individuals as well as advocacy and actions promoting environmentally and socially sustainable politics. Partners:
- Centre for Mesoamerican Studies on Appropriate Technology (CEMAT), Guatemala
- Centre de Produccion, Promocion y Capacitacion (CEPROCA), Bolivia
In both Guatemala and Bolivia there are marginalized, although big, groups lacking influence and the lack of respect for human rights, equality and transparency has demanded a work focused on capacity building of leaders and representatives as well as civic population on issues concerning gender equality and the right to equal participation in decision making processes as well as insight into local politics. Democracy and the respect for human rights are, within this programme, seen as intertwined with other societal issues such as sustainable development.
