Conservation needs lobbying. That's why at NABU we also take initiative to foster civil society and strengthen NGOs.
Green NGOs play a critical role worldwide in conserving unique habitats and protecting threatened species, promoting environmental awareness and lobbying for ecosystem services representing the interests of local communities and minorities. But missing skills, capacities and funding, and little room for organizational development weaken NGOs.
NABU is looking back to many years of experience in supporting and strengthening civil society partners. We are part of the global partnership of conservation organizations like BirdLife International and proudly work together with many of the more than 100 partners around the world.
