Climate for Growth Civil Society Organisation’s Online Masterclasses

Following our engagements with Civil Society Organisations, DWF has developed two Climate for Growth Masterclasses.

Watch Lindokuhle Vellem from the Public Service Accountability Monitor present the keynote address at the latest “Climate for Growth” Civil Society Organisation’s workshop in May 2023. This presentation outlines the processes, timelines, and opportunities civil society organisations need to consider when engaging and participating in government budgets and resource related decision making.


Watch Jolene Shaw, representing Knowledge Pele, for an online version of the keynote address she delivered at the latest “Climate for Growth” Civil Society Organisation workshop in May 2023. In this presentation she shares her wealth of experience in facilitating community relations with Independent Power Producers. This learning session aims to outline the IPP funding landscape and outline best practice processes for building partnerships with the sector.
