    Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa (CAPPA)

    Corporate Accountability and Public Participation Africa (CAPPA) works to advance human rights, challenge corporate abuse of our natural resources and build community power for inclusive development and participatory governance.

    CAPPA is a Pan – African organisation that is passionately devoted to working with African communities and to build partnerships with them towards taking collective social action towards the promotion and defence of the rights of peoples. It would challenge the abuse of our natural resources, our environment and our people through corporate and state policies and practices.

    Upcoming Event

    For the next four days, CAPPA and our partners will be hosting the “Our Future is Public” (#OFIP2022) conference in Santiago, Chile.

    Our Future is Public, being a gathering of social movements, unions and civil society organisations from across the globe, is focused on developing strategies, strengthening movements towards enhancing public services and democratic control for the realisation of economic, social and cultural rights while defending the honour of humans and the planet.

    CAPPA is strategically positioned to drive the water and education sectors towards realisable democratic controls.

    Day one and two of the conference will focus on economic justice, social protection, water, education, health, energy, waste, transportation housing, food and agriculture.

    The last two days of the conference is structured to connect movements and organisations participating in the conference towards collective discussions on intersections and cross-cutting issues of gender justice, climate change, economic and tax justice, and democratic public ownership.
