The Southern Voices is a coalition of climate networks and partners in the Global South, supported by a Consortium of Danish development NGOs, all engaged in promoting pro-poor climate policies locally and globally.

The project is coordinated through three regional facilitators based with southern partner NGOs, in addition to the Secretariat in Copenhagen, which is hosted by CARE Danmark.


The Southern Voices on Adaptation project was initiated in 2014 to support partner networks engaged in climate change adaptation policy advocacy from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The project has since developed the Joint Principles for Adaptation as a benchmark for good adaptation policy and has been testing them in countries throughout the Global South.

The Southern Voices programme dates back to COP15, where it was created to support southern civil society organisations in advocating for climate change policies, both nationally and globally, that benefit poor and vulnerable people.

The Danish development NGOs behind the program have provided capacity-building and flexible support to southern climate policy networks, with funding from the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
