Southern Africa Political Parties and Dialogue Programme

Democracy Works Foundation has partnered with the Centre for Multiparty Democracy-Malawi (CMD-M) and Freedom House Southern Africa (FH-SA) on the Southern Africa Political Parties and Dialogue Programme (SAPP&D). Supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the programme is being implemented across the five SADC countries of Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Zambia and Malawi.

SAPP&D seeks to strengthen the democratic structures and institutions of political parties in these countries, to better respond to and represent the needs of citizens, particularly in the areas of water and energy resource management. In this way, the SAPP&D Programme also aims to contribute to the realisation of SADC’s Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Strategy and Action and SADC’s Regional Water Infrastructure Programme. The programme seeks to deepen democratic governance in the region.
