Our Projects

EPA Watch

As its name implies, EJN’s EPA Watch monitors Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs). The project maintains critical vigilance over EPA negotiations in the SADC EPA grouping and also in the Eastern and Southern Africa EPA grouping.


Trade and Justice

The world trade regime is largely shaped by the interests of rich countries while the concerns of poor countries in their search for development are neglected. Trade should be seen not as an end in itself but as a means to achieve development.


Debt and Justice

Under this programme EJN will continue the spirit of the Jubilee in fighting for cancellation of foreign debts and also for odious and illegitimate debt. In the coming three years we will build a strong campaign and profile on extractive industries, ecological debt and climate change advocacy.


Food and Justice

The financial crisis, following hard on the heels of the soaring food prices which threw an additional 75 million people into hunger and poverty in 2007 alone, will certainly deepen the plight of the poor people in developing countries.


SADC Advocacy

This project is part of EJN’s programme of policy advocacy to promote pro-poor policy formulation in the SADC region. An aspect of this programme is the Informal Cross Border Trading (ICBT) in the SADC Region where EJN will come up with a set of tools and support ICBT programme activities for the benefit of cross border traders.
