Promoting excellence in public participation in Southern Africa

Welcome

A warm welcome to all our IAP2 Southern Africa members, Friends of IAP2, and other interested stakeholders and groups across the African Continent. It is indeed a privilege to be part of this growing family of IAP2 and to have the opportunity to engage with yourself on this platform.

IAP2SA is committed to a year of more interactive engagements aimed at sharing valuable and relevant information. Our objective is to enhance the daily activities and the profession of public participation practitioners, the image of IAP2SA and more so; to ensure that you are kept up-to-date on informative information within the public participation / stakeholder engagement field.

We hope to achieve our objective through the use of various social mediums including but not limited to dedicated webinar sessions, IAP2SA Whatsapp group, Facebook and Twitter updates, through our Face-to-Face Board and Annual General Meetings, Upcoming Trainings and Events that we will be hosting during the Year.

We cannot achieve this alone and thus urge you to take part in this exciting yet transforming journey with us.
