Civil Society for MDG, General Call for Poverty Reduction (Zambia)
I think the G8 leaders will hear the voice of NGOs, their concern about the situation in Africa. This is a good chance for the Russian NGOs to show their activeness and understanding of international problems. The problems of Africa considerably coincide with the priorities of G8-2006 – education, infectious diseases, global energy security.
The success of every civil society activity will depend enormously on the fact, how it is able to tie national and international problems solving together.
What should be made by the civil society for its voice could be heard? We must unit our efforts – the lonely voice cannot be heard at all. And in the future we should to monitor and control how the G8 Group takes its promises, how it implements the recommendations of the civil society.
