Civic Response is a leading natural resource and environmental (NRE) governance policy advocacy organisation working to entrench resource rights.
Founded in 2003 in Accra, Ghana by a group of activists with experience in resource rights campaigns both locally and globally, Civic Response undertakes activities which address the policy needs of communities who depend directly on natural resources, particularly forests.
We are actively engaged in the global climate change discourse especially as it relates to forests.
A just, productive, pluralistic and tolerant society collectively in control of its resources and systematically improving development opportunities for all citizens’ and communities.
Civic Response seeks to change social arrangements that entrench marginalisation, exclusion and division as well as provide advocacy and networking support to self-organised citizens’ groups in the natural resource and environment sector.
