Introducing "TAP Network Conversations"
An Interview with Peter van Sluijs & Judith Kaulem, TAP Steering Committee Co-Chairs 2020-2021
The first in a series of “TAP Network Conversations”, the TAP Network Steering Committee Co-Chairs share their reflections on the importance of SDG16+ in response and recovery to the COVID-19 crisis, their expectations for the 2020 High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), and what to expect from the TAP Network for 2020-2021.
Judith Kaulem represents the Poverty Reduction Forum Trust, where she is the Executive Director, on the TAP Network Steering Committee. Judith has worked extensively in the area of poverty, gender and human development research. The Poverty Reduction Forum Trust (PRFT) is a civil society organization founded in 2008 with the mandate to influence the formulation and implementation of pro-poor policies in Zimbabwe. It realizes this mandate through undertaking research on poverty issues, engaging with policy makers, promoting broad-based consultative dialogue and processes, as well as advocating for sustainable human development. The PRFT’s mission is to inform and influence poverty reduction and sustainable human development through research, public dialogue and advocacy.
Peter van Sluijs coordinates the Civil Society Platform for Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (CSPPS) — the South-North non-governmental coalition of peacebuilding organisations that coordinates and supports civil society participation in the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (IDPS) and New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States. CSPPS provides strategic and capacity assistance for in-country interventions working to amplify the voice of civil society in policy processes. At the global level CSPPS coordinates lobby and advocacy efforts around sustaining peace, conflict prevention, peacebuilding and statebuilding.
