The Environmental Monitoring Group (EMG) is a non-profit NGO based in Cape Town with a professional staff of 10 people and funded by a range of international donors.

We work to strengthen the participation of civil society organisations and community groups in policy and other decision-making processes that affect them and their relationship to the natural environment. Our focus is thus on building relationships - between individuals, groups, and government - which ensure more sustainable natural resource management.

EMG's work is limited to programmes in climate change adaptation, water resources, rural development and fair trade. Our work includes providing information (research and analysis), facilitation (getting people to work together) and demonstration (providing examples of alternatives).
