The Pan African Climate Justice Alliance (PACJA) is a continental coalition of civil society organizations in the African continent, brought together by the common goal of promoting and advocating for climate-friendly and equity-based development. Currently drawing its membership from 300 non-governmental organizations, foundations, trusts, community-based organizations, faith-based networks, national coalitions and regional networks from 45 countries in Africa; PACJA aims to unify isolated civil society efforts on climate change advocacy and coordination in Africa, so as to ensure that pro-poor and people-centred response measures are put into consideration as governments in Africa seek to mainstream climate change into national development strategies.
