C 20 18-19 June, Hamburg
At the C20 Summit on 18-19 June 2017, more than 450 individuals representing more than 200 NGOs from over 60 countries came together in Hamburg to discuss “The World We Want”, making the voice of civil society heard within the G20. In plenary sessions and workshops, issues like shrinking spaces, global health, climate, agriculture, finance systems reform and others were discussed, as well as new networks built. One of the highlights was the discussion with Chancellor Merkel. ADA was well represented in this important event.
c25d0522-0faf-4ce9-9114-e145042d1b26.jpgThe participants supported the C20 Communique. The Communique, together with the C20 Recommendations, lays out the asks of civil society organisations from more than 60 countries to the G20 Leaders’ Summit on 7-8 July 2017 in Hamburg.

Capacity Development and Strengthening in the Asia region: Regional Strategy MeetingJune 26-28th 2017 Manila, Philippines6dceb193-11a8-494f-99ab-11c8334edc4b.jpg
CIVICUS in partnership with CODE NGO (ADA member) organized the Asia regional meeting to identify capacity gaps in training needs in order to fill those gaps with capacity strengthening sessions. The three days’ regional workshop focused on the issues of #DataForAction (how and what data to collect) and data presentation tools, need and capacity building assessment in Asia and the issue of digital security. Please refer to the link for greater information on data collection and analysis tools. The three days training program, was highly appreciated by the participants and there were requests to organize such more but elaborated programs as the CSO’s collect huge volumes of data and information but don’t know how to use or showcase real information for advocacy purpose. Similarly, digital security is becoming one of the gravest problems in the region and the CSOs are also getting impacted because of their inability to protect their data and information.
