The State of Development Cooperation, CSO Enabling Environment and CSO Development Effectiveness
The present report is a global synthesis drawing on contributions from 23 selected country CSOs on the current state of development cooperation, CSO enabling environment, and CSO development effectiveness at a country level.
Therefore, based on cross-country inputs and starting from an overview of development cooperation, this report attempts at bringing together critical perspectives on the current context for CSOs’ engagement in the enabling environment for CSOs, as well as assess the added-value of their contribution (either through service delivery or advocacy activism) in shaping the development agenda and supporting development efforts—CSO development effectiveness. It will feed into the work of the CPDE platform, as well as on the work of its member CSOs around the world, galvanising future policy engagement initiatives at global and country level. Below are detailed summary and analyses of the trends and recommendations, as presented in the reports under the three areas of focus.
