Transparency Maldives has launched a campaign called “Ma Bassa”.
“Ma Bassaa” is a campaign by the Climate Integrity Project (CIP) of Transparency Maldives to advocate for and promote “Inclusive Governance”. The aforementioned title of the campaign roughly translates to “include/involve me” in Dhivehi.
Through this campaign we aim to bridge the gap between local communities; CBOs and the implementing agencies and government institutions of the country. For successful implementation of climate change projects in the Maldives, it is essential that local communities have a sense of ownership towards ongoing climate change programs
The consultations for the Assessment of Climate Finance Governance by TM showed unanimity amongst all stakeholders for the need for better governance of climate finds and the need for collaboration between donors, the government and civil society. It is this collaboration that the “Ma Bassaa” campaign aims to facilitate.
We have written a governance update on our campaign and what it entails.
