General Information:

The Environmental Monitoring Group was established in June 1991 to pursue its mission, in the belief that sustainable development in South Africa would not be possible without environmental justice and the empowered representation of communities and interest groups in policy and decision-making.

In implementing our mission, we see our role as building bridges between decision-makers and citizens most affected by such decisions. As an independent NGO, we are able to retain credibility with both decision-makers and civil society. The building and strengthening of bridges in different situations require different strategies. These include:

  • brokering,

  • research,

  • capacity-building,

  • networking,

  • information dissemination,

  • advocacy and

  • lobbying.

In all our interventions, we strive to develop capacity with both civil society groups and complementary agents in government and industry, so that a continuing dynamic of adaptation to change can be sustained without our ongoing involvement. We also strive actively and regularly to reflect on our own actions, on the problem dynamics, and on what we are learning, as we help find solutions.
