This project sought to strengthen the ability of CSOs acting on a regional level to participate in sustainable development, build regional cohesion and resilience as well as influence policy making in the Southern Neighborhood and the Euro-Mediterranean Space. This aimed to address the absence of civil society as an for regional change in the southern Neighborhood. This was to take place in a new regional perspective with enhanced south-south and south-north exchanges. The project also aimed to address the shrinking civil society spaces in the region, strengthening civil society and young activists by enhancing their ability to strategize, cooperate and advocate for rights, social cohesion and sustainable development.
