About this grant

CIVICUS’s new strategic plan calls for focus on three chief themes: civic existence, civic expression and civic engagement. During the year, CIVICUS planned and delivered its fifth World Assembly, held March 2004 in Gabarone, Botswana, and attended by more than 700 participants from 105 countries. This grant increase will help bolster the organization’s core budget and partially assist with costs associated with the World Assembly.
