14 – 16 August 2017

Informed by the theme of this 13th Southern Africa civil society forum on “building people’s organisations, securing our common future, consolidating our gains and confronting our challenges”, we adopt the following Plan of Action as our collective commitment and roadmap towards the SADC We Want:


Statelessness in SADC

  1. As CSOs we will advocate for SADC Member States to support a Protocol on the Right to Nationality and the Eradication of Statelessness in Africa.
  2. As CSOs we will engage SADC member States to design and implement regional and national plans of action to eradicate statelessness in SADC, including appointing focal points in each state to deal with statelessness.
  3. As CSOs we will advocate for SADC Member States to work together to ensure universal birth registration in SADC.
