The Access Initiative network has been in existence for 14 years. We at the Secretariat are very proud of the accomplishments of the network, our partners and friends. The TAI Core Team leadership has made a decision to open up TAI to new organizations and individual members. This is for many reasons including: • to keep renewing our network with fresh views and ideas, • scale our impact at the national and international level • Ensure we do not lose champions when they change jobs, and • Build a more effective, sustainable and action-oriented network.
The Global Gathering is The Access Initiative’s bi-annual event to promote action learning, capacity building and change at the national and international level to improve transparency, citizen engagement and accountability in environmental matters.
