No to ProSavana | 9 November 2016 | Português
On 27 August 2016, the No to ProSAVANA Campaign, along with another 83 organizations from across the globe, published the “Joint statement and open questions on ProSAVANA by the civil society of Mozambique, Brazil and Japan in response to newly leaked government documents”. This above-mentioned statement stresses the facts revealed in leaked documents and the way the program has been carrying out actions against the organizations questioning the program through “ProSAVANA’s Communication Strategy” established by using the fund of JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency).
The documents also show the governments’ strategy, put in place by JICA consultants, to divide Mozambican civil society by marginalizing and excluding the member organizations of the No to ProSAVANA Campaign ever since the process of the creation of a “dialogue mechanism” aiming to redesign ProSAVANA’s Master Plan (MP) began. Nevertheless, the Campaign was the only entity that published a critical analysis of the MP.
