We support people’s participation in democracy and development through three main programme areas: Participatory Governance and Gender, Commonwealth Writers, and Grants. Take a look at our projects and filter by governance areas, issues, project type, or location.


Environment and climate change

Countries on the frontline of climate change and people in communities who depend on natural resources for their livelihoods, often have the least opportunity to participate in policy and decision-making that affects their lives. The Foundation supports projects to get the voices of marginalised communities and women heard and improve their participation in policy and decision-making processes.
