Many organizations and individuals from Zimbabwe took part in the drafting process of the Earth Charter starting in early 1998. During the first half of 1999 the Africa 2000 Network organized and facilitated Earth Charter consultations, as well as three regional workshops to increase national awareness of global Earth Charter process and involve Zimbabwe’s civil society in its formulation. A Network of partnership was created by the Africa 2000 Network, which is a network that includes both national and local government, CBOs, NGOs, academic institutions, professional associations, the private sector, religious and spiritual organizations, cultural entities, women and youth groups, parliamentarians, and prominent personalities.
Africa 2000 was involved with the Earth Charter Initiative for many years. Since 2014, the organization that is following up this network’s commitment to the Earth Charter is Neremoto Biodiversity Institute.
