To ensure Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) properly advocates and possess a working mechanism on communicating the needs of the society to authorities, the active and effective strategies and working in coalitions is key. Building on this background, a total of 20 participants from different CSOs from Dar-es-salaam, Lushoto, Pangani, Chalinze, and Dodoma, gathered in Dar-es-salaam on 24th May 2018 to attend the first meeting of the National CSOs platform organized by Climate action Network Tanzania (CAN Tanzania). This platform is working in a coalition to execute advocacy activities, specifically to enhance the public support on climate change responses, Environmental Policies, Renewable Energy and Poverty Reduction; and to ensure that public opinions are communicated to the government using different approaches such as policy briefs, mass media and petitions. In this meeting a couple of issues were discussed, they include Enforcement of laws on different issues related to climate and environment, the energy sector, land use planning and management, agriculture, fisheries and financing renewable energy. This platform will continuously work for 3 years as part of the project “Aligning Climate Resilience, Sustainable Development and Poverty reduction in Tanzania” implemented by CAN Tanzania, and funded by Bread for the World, a Protestant Organization based in Germany.
