INVITATION Online Presentation and Discussion "How we work with civil society" Thursday, 9 July 2020, 14.00 – 15.30h
The scope for civil society to operate and engage in policy processes and as a watchdog, without fear of official disapproval, violence and judicial pursuits, has narrowed in the past two decades. The CIVICUS Monitor reported in 2019 that 40% of the world's population now lives in countries with repressed civic space.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is clear on the need to engage civil society organisations (CSOs) in implementing and monitoring the Sustainable Development Goals. With their capacity to bring the voices of those on the frontlines of poverty, inequality and vulnerability into development processes, CSOs can help to ensure no one is left behind. In order to work to their maximum potential, CSOs need members of the Development Assistance Committee (DAC) to provide and promote enabling environments.
We are happy to invite you to the online presentation and discussion of the following recently published Study and Guidance Note:
