CEPPS partners with civil society organizations (CSOs) to strengthen domestic oversight of electoral processes and enhance civil society engagement on issues of political and electoral reform.
CEPPS supports local partner efforts to enhance credible and non-partisan oversight of domestic electoral processes at both the local and national levels. CEPPS provides technical and financial assistance to a local domestic observation network to train and deploy observers for parliamentary and local-level elections, as well as for critical pre-election processes such as boundary delimitation and voter registration.
To enhance inclusive participation in political processes, CEPPS works with a diverse array of CSOs to collaborate and engage with government stakeholders on legislation and electoral and political reform issues. CEPPS assists partner CSOs to strengthen their capacity for advocacy, particularly around issues pertaining to the empowerment and inclusion of traditionally marginalized populations including women, youth and persons with disabilities.
To support sustainable youth political leadership in Zambia, CEPPS has worked with political party youth wings and youth led CSOs to provide leadership training and develop platforms for cross-party youth engagement and exchange.
