CWS Japan is part of a new Japanese initiative, NGO2030, in anticipation of that year being an important one for the UN Sustainable Development Goals, the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Paris (climate change) Agreement, and in self-recognition that Japanese NGOs have a timely chance to renew their vision and purpose to be relevant in a changing world context. Importantly, Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs is supporting NGO2030 and, in consultation with academia, the private sector, government, et al., a vision statement for Japan’s NGO sector will be drafted starting in 2019. Importantly, CWS Japan team members will engage in the process to influence the vision and the statement.
