Civil society organisations in the South play a key role in our ambition to achieve a fair and sustainable world. Our Southern partners identify, develop and implement ways of using and managing land, forests and water fairly and sustainably. In addition, they draw our attention to abuses – often caused by international money flows – that widen the gap between rich and poor, destroy the environment and violate human rights, and they are the first to combat these abuses.
Both ENDS' partners share our vision of fair, sustainable and inclusive development. They include civil society and community-based organisations, NGOs and research institutes. Most of them are located in developing countries, but we also work with organisations in the Netherlands and other Northern countries.
The Samdhana Institute is a South-East Asian small grants organization with strong connections to Indonesian grassroots environmental and women’s groups, with national offices in Indonesia and the Philippines.
