In Fundación Democracia y Desarrollo we know that we are not alone when facing  the challenges of looking for roads of  sustainable development, more participation and with greater levels of equity and social justice. With these purposes, we partner with civil society organizations,  agencies of cooporation, Universities, and the private sector, creating synergies for a more productive impact with our actions.

We are especially interested (not being limited to) in establishing partnerships for projects related to sustainable development, participation, and new technologies for the improvement of our democracies. If your organization is interested in sharing learning experiences or cooperation with our present or future projects, please write to: [email protected]
