Basic South Initiative

BASIC South Initiative (BSi) is a core group of civil society organizations in the global South, which has come together to create partnerships with like-minded BASIC NGOs/social movements and networks that recognize this new power dynamic. Its aim is to amplify and bring new Southern voices, and resistance from the ground up, to move the BASIC countries to take a joint responsibility for their ecological footprint through coordinated actions for environmentally sustainable, socially just and climate-resilient development, and to demand transparency and accountability in the national and international institutions, and decision making processes at all levels of governance.
