Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico


O CNPq foi criado pela Lei nº 1.310, de 15 de janeiro de 1951, com a denominação de Conselho Nacional de Pesquisas. Na ocasião, o art. 1º, §1º dessa lei atribuiu ao conselho personalidade jurídica própria e o subordinou diretamente à Presidência da República. Posteriormente, a Lei nº 6.129, de 6 de novembro de 1974 transformou o Conselho Nacional de Pesquisas no atual Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico e reformulou sua configuração jurídica, atribuindo-o personalidade jurídica de direito privado, sob a forma de fundação. Desde a edição do Decreto nº 91.146, de 15 de março de 1985, o CNPq é vinculado ao Ministério da Ciência e Tecnologia (atual MCTIC). Seu estatuto mais recente foi aprovado pelo Decreto nº 8.866, de 3 de outubro de 2016.

Journal of Geography, Politics and Society


Journal of Geography, Political and Society is an interdisciplinary journal which accepts articles from a broad range of widely understood social sciences (socio-economic geography, sociology, political sciences, economics, administration, public safety, cultural anthropology, demography, public health, etc.). We publish articles on the situation or changes taking place around the world, but the journal especially focuses on countries of Central Europe and the countries of the former USSR.

Malaysian Journal of Economic Studies


The primary purpose of the journal is to promote publications of original research related to the Malaysian economy. It is also designed to serve as an outlet for studies on the South-east Asian countries and the Asian region. The journal also considers high-quality works related to other regions that provide relevant policy lessons to Malaysia. The journal is receptive to papers in all areas of economics. We encourage specifically contributions on all range of economic topics of an applied or policy nature. At the same time, submissions of methodological or theoretical studies with results that are of practical use are welcome. Works that are interdisciplinary will be considered provided that they contain substantial economic contents.

Regional Land Management Unit


An important outcome of the 1972 UN Summit on Environment in Stockholm, Sweden, was the agreement between Kenya and Sweden to cooperate on soil conservation. As a result, the Kenya National Soil and Water Conservation Programme started in 1974 under the Ministry of Agriculture, with support from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency(Sida). In 1982, Sida established the Regional Soil Conservation Unit (RSCU) to disseminate soil and water conservation experiences in Kenya to other Countries in the region. A border mandate-land management-transformed into the Regional Land Management Unit (RELMA).

The African Economic Research Consortium


Established in 1988, the African Economic Research Consortium is a capacity building institution to inform economic policies in sub-Saharan Africa. The launch of AERC goes back to the late 1980s, when a small group of Africanists and African scholars began to recognize the disconnect between economic policy making and economic research in sub-Saharan Africa. Available research results, applied to other economies, did not always seem appropriate to the African context. And where such results were available, they were too often not put to use. 

Their concern swelled into a full-fledged idea; they had a discussion about a vehicle for pooling their expertise and applying it to the development of economic policy capacity in sub-Saharan Africa. And instead of sitting around mumbling about the problem, they decided to act. Thus, the AERC was born. The idea was fairly simple– to set up a framework for supporting sound economic research on themes of importance to the management of economies in Africa and make existing expertise available through experienced economists who could serve as resource persons to the researchers supported under the framework. First, they were able to convince one donor to support the idea, then a small group of donors.

That group of donor agencies grew into the actual Consortium itself. Based in Nairobi, AERC was formally established in 1988. A postgraduate training programme soon followed the research efforts, and then a publishing and communications component. Today the Consortium reaches across sub-Saharan Africa, with research and training alumni serving in central banks, ministries of finance, economic departments of universities and policy research institutes.

AERC has three primary components: research, training and policy outreach. The organization integrates economic policy research, postgraduate training and policy outreach within a network of researchers, universities and policy makers in Africa and worldwide.

Accountability Counsel

Accountability Counsel amplifies the voices of communities around the world to protect their human rights and environment. As advocates for people harmed by internationally financed projects, we employ community-driven and policy level strategies to access justice.

Why We Are Needed

The very projects meant to lift people out of poverty often have the opposite impact. These projects, such as dams, mines, and oil pipelines are notorious for environmental and human rights abuses, including forced displacement of indigenous people, poisoned rivers used for drinking water, and sexual abuse of women and girls by foreign workers.

The millions of people a year who suffer these types of abuses have few options for recourse. Those who most need access to justice are the ones facing the greatest barriers to information, have the least political power and the fewest financial resources, and lack the professional support required to seek it. Accountability Counsel exists to bridge these barriers for communities and create accountability in development finance resulting in systemic change. Accountability Counsel works to hold nearly $12 trillion a year accountable to global human rights and environmental standards.

Who We Are

We are a global team working from four regions divided equally between the Global South and North. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, we have an office in Washington, D.C., and have regional presences in South Asia and Africa. We partner with organizations and communities around the world.


Founded over 30 years ago, ACORD is one of the oldest and largest Pan-African organisations. We work in 17 African countries to promote social justice and lift Africans out of poverty. ACORD works with more than one million Africans and 2000 partners on the continent and worldwide.

ACORD's vision is a society in which all citizens are able to achieve their rights and fulfil their responsibilities.

ACORD's mission is to work in common cause with people who are poor and those who have been denied their rights to obtain social justice and development and be part of locally rooted citizen movements.

Our work is guided by a number of fundamental values and working principles, chief amongst these is our belief that people themselves are the primary actors in their own development. Through the power of collective action African citizens have the ability to transform their future.

Act Alliance EU

We are a network of 14 faith-based development agencies from across Europe whose purpose is to influence EU policy makers and decision-making processes in the pursuit of justice, peace and the eradication of global poverty.

We bring many years of experience to the work. For 25 years we were known as APRODEV and since January 2015 as ACT Alliance EU.  Our policy and advocacy is always rooted in the reality of our global partners and stakeholders, demonstrating the consequences of decisions made in Brussels on the lives of people in different contexts and in different parts of the world. We believe that Southern voices need to be heard and listened to in the European Union.

Our three areas of focus are climate change, food security and the European Union’s development policy and practice. These are crucial and connected issues. We also engage in the relations between the EU and the Middle East, and the EU and Central America, and how they affect development and human rights.

We are part of ACT Alliance, a global coalition of 140 relief and development agencies, joining our efforts to influence global policy making by combining our EU advocacy and policy expertise with ACT Alliance’s advocacy work in the global South and with the United Nations.

We are a faith based network. As such we pursue rights-based development from a faith-based perspective, working to uphold the dignity of all human beings. We are united in a commitment to holistic, inclusive and sustainable development for all. This means addressing the social, cultural, spiritual, environmental, political and economic dimensions that are needed for all people to live with dignity, justice and peace.

Administración General de la Comunidad Autonoma de Euskadi

El País Vasco o Euskadi (Euskadi) es una comunidad autónoma española, situada en el extremo nororiental de la franja cantábrica, lindando al norte con el Golfo de Vizcaya (mar Cantábrico) y Francia (Aquitania), al sur con La Rioja, al oeste con Cantabria y Burgos y al este con Navarra. El País Vasco está reconocido como nacionalidad histórica por su Estatuto de Autonomía. Lo integran las provincias (denominadas territorios históricos en el ordenamiento autonómico) de Álava, Guipúzcoa y Vizcaya.

En el pasado, las provincias que componen el actual País Vasco fueron conocidas también como Provincias Vascas, Provincias Forales, Provincias Exentas (hasta 1841), Provincias Vascongadas, o simplemente, Vascongadas. En la actualidad, la denominación Comunidad Autónoma Vasca (CAV; en euskera: Euskal Autonomia Erkidegoa [EAE]) es utilizada con frecuencia, especialmente en la propia comunidad autónoma y Navarra, ya que las denominaciones Euskadi y País Vasco también han sido usadas históricamente,7 desde su creación con la grafía Euzkadi en el siglo XIX la primera, y antes de 1897 la segunda,8 9 para nombrar un concepto diferente al de la comunidad autónoma, el de Vasconia o Euskal Herria.

Navarra tiene derecho a formar una autonomía conjunta con el País Vasco, en el supuesto de que decida su incorporación de acuerdo con lo dispuesto en la disposición transitoria cuarta de la Constitución española, y reglamentado en el Amejoramiento del Fuero, si bien no ha ejercido nunca tal derecho. Las relaciones entre ambas comunidades han sido de carácter muy variado desde la Transición.

El País Vasco tiene una extensión total de 7.234 km²,10 y una población de 2.164.311 habitantes (INE 2015),11 con una densidad de población de 299,19 hab/km². Oficialmente no tiene una capital, pero oficiosamente, su capital es Vitoria (Álava), sede de las instituciones comunes del Parlamento y del Gobierno vasco.2 La ciudad más poblada es Bilbao.

Advocates Coalition for Development and Environment


Advocates Coalition for Development and Environment (ACODE) is an independent public policy research and advocacy think tank based in Uganda working in East and Southern Africa. ACODE was first registered in 1999 as a Non-governmental organization (NGO). In 2004, the organization was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee and without having a share capital. ACODE is one of the most dynamic and robust regional leaders in cutting-edge public policy research and analysis in a range of areas including governance, trade, environment, and science and technology. ACODE has, for the last four consecutive years, been ranked in the Global Go To Think Tank Index as one of the best think tanks in Uganda and one of the top think tanks in the world. Think Tanks in Africa continue to play a major role in policy development and implementation. The Advocates Coalition for Development and Environment (ACODE) has been ranked 23 out of 92 Top Think Tanks in Sub-Saharan Africa and 29 out of 90 globally with Best Advocacy Campaign in the 2015 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report (TTI), led by the University of Pennsylvania through its Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP).

ACODE is non-partisan and independent and therefore does not align with any political party or political organisation. However, given the direct relationship between development policy and politics, we believe that our work is political and it must stand for certain political causes of a bi-partisan nature. Such causes are legitimate issues of research interest so long as they are defined on the basis of constitutionalism, the rule of law as well as national and regional interests as expressed in the relevant treaties, strategy documents and declarations. ACODE's work is based on three broad programmes areas: Environmental DemocracyPeace and Democracy, and Innovation and Biotechnology Policy. Our core business is to undertake advocacy-driven public policy research and analysis on contemporary and emerging public policy and governance issues that have a significant impact on national development.
