the project

We support the recognition of local governance forms and the strengthening of community governance of all persons from different age groups like boys and girls, adolescents, adults as well as the elderly. We are systematizing the learning and knowledge about community governance indicators that allows us to design strategies to strengthen community governance from an intergenerational perspective.
 
Between 2016 and 2018 we addressed the community governance with ten communities and five civil organisations, allied with the project"Community and Intercultural Governance for the exercise of social participation, accountability and human rights in the state of Oaxaca". It is implemented in the framework of the Social Cohesion Laboratory II Mexico-European Union.

The project arises from the urgent need to increase and improve the capacities of civil society and CSO's to dialogue and effectively excercise their civil and political rights to participate in the design, implementation, monitoring and social audit of public policies and institutional practices, in order to improve social cohesion and good governance from an intercultural, gender and sustainability perspective, through culturally and linguistically relevant practices as well as tools.
