Effective leadership of civil society organisations and collective civil society action is fundamental to the achievement of positive changes in the natural resource management, forest governance and community and indigenous rights sectors

Well Grounded aims to contribute to this by creating opportunities for directors, managers and team leaders from civil society organisations to meet, reflect and learn together, and by improving their leadership skills and capacity.
