ELCI has a large membership consisting of civil society organizations that share a common purpose – that of impacting the state of the global environment, for its intrinsic value and for human survival. The membership is drawn from the three ELCI Regions, thus: Africa, Asia, Europe and Americas.
ELCI, working with and through its members, has achieved tremendous results in the past in terms of championing the environment course and eliciting the much needed change. For example:
More recently, ELCI has been in the forefront of activities that led to inclusion of critical clauses that legally protect the rights of women to land and property inheritance in Kenya; stopping government-sanctioned forest excisions that affected Kenya’s most important water towers – the Aberdares.
The CSOs join the ELCI Network, first and foremost, because they are united by the mission, vision and values of ELCI. The network enables them to exist within a family of like-minded organizations; to amplify their voices while championing the environment agenda in national and international development planning; to increase networking and resource mobilization opportunities; and to share lessons thereby strengthening their individual institutional capacities to deliver results.
Most importantly, the nationally and geographically diverse membership has the critical role of driving the agenda of ELCI, ensuring that ELCI’s work is consistent with present needs in environment and sustainable development, and that the activities reflect the needs and priorities as set by members.
The membership elects the Board of Directors on a four year term basis, such as to represent all the four regions of the world where ELCI members are present. Current board members are as follows:
|The Americas||Asia||Africa and Europe|
