The following campaigns are part of CENFACS advocacy service.
• ACCSDGs (3G)
The African Children Climate and Sustainable Development Goals or 3G project
3G project is the impact level in CENFACS’ process of advocating that global goals work for children and not way around. It is indeed the testing of the gains that global goals claim to achieve and of their impact on the welfare and well-being of children.
ACCSDGs (3G) is advocacy strategy for a better impact. This advocacy is conducted under the banner of Generation Global Goals (3G), highlighting the different global goals and what they claim to achieve for local children.
• A la une (Autumn Leaves of Action for the Upkeep of the Nature in Existence)
A la une is an environmental advocacy project aiming at reducing poverty while protecting the physical world and everything in it. It is about exploring ways of using fewer natural resources to reduce poverty while caring for the plants, animals, mountains, oceans and rivers, stars, seas etc. In doing so, we can help meet poor people’s own poverty-relieving and development goals while working to achieve the global goals for sustainable development and carbon free world.
The campaign begins every Autumn and lasts until the end of the year
• Climate Protection and Stake for African Children (CPSAC)
Climate Protection and Stake for African Children (CPSAC), which revolves around FOLLOWING THE CLIMATE TALKS, is our rebranded international child protection project helping to further up CENFACS’ process of advocating better climate deals for children. CPSAC is the Phase 2 of CENFACS’ Climate Talks Follow-up project, the FACGMDGCS (First African Children Generation of the Millennium Development Goals) being Phase 1. The FACGMDGs has been a child protection advocacy model based on a sample of children who have been affected by the adverse impacts of climate change.
• Halving Poverty
HP campaign is about Halving Child Poverty (or Halving the Number of Poor Children). We advocate for the reduction or better the halving of the number of children who are or become poor because of various reasons. This campaign is a CENFACS’ way of bringing helpful differences to these children by helping in enhancing various dimensions of child rights. This campaign is too part of CENFACS PEACE, PROTECTION AND SUSTAINABILITY programme,
To support the Halving Poverty campaign, please contact CENFACS.
• World Anti-Poverty System (WAS) or International System for Poverty Reduction (ISPR)
World Anti-Poverty System campaign is the continuation of the CENFACS’ Argument following the Post-2015 Global Development Agenda and discussions that led to the setting up of the United Nations 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals. The CENFACS’ Argument was then the international development community should be a bit more ambitious by going beyond and establish an internationally agreed system to reduce and end poverty.
The case for WAS is still in demand in today’s reality of the world. In the light of what is happening now in the world (regarding for examples trade tariffs and migration flows issues), one can wonder whether or not the current international system, if it exists, is suitable for the poor.
WAS is run through E-mobilisation Days.
For further details about WAS and or to support, contact CENFACS.
