WORKS WITH BOTH ENDS ON
DODO is a member of 'eniD' (European Networking Initiative on Desertification), as is Both ENDS. This task force focuses on supporting organisations that are active in dry areas so that their concerns and successes receive more attention on public and political agendas in Europe.
ADDED VALUE OF PARTNERSHIP
DODO is a relatively new member of eniD, and is the only volunteer organisation in the taskforce. For DODO, eniD is an extra opportunity to get financing for dryland projects from the Finnish government. Within eniD, Both ENDS and DODO can stand in for one another at meetings, so that NGO representation is present more often. Partly as a result of this, eniD has become a key discussion partner for the European Commission and its member states.
