Why did CSOs take on the challenge?

- CSOs have acknowledged that the changing aid architecture provides challenges to their own effectiveness (accountability, transparency, impact, enabling environment etc.)

- CSO have started many initiatives to define and promote their effectiveness, but had not yet defined their effectiveness collectively as a global stakeholder group

- In undertaking the Open Forum process, CSOs are emphasizing that we are key actors and partners in development

- The Open Forum process also serves as a tool to refocus the discussion from aid management issues to the actual goals of development and the impact achieved through our work

Open Forum set out to answer:

  • What values guide our work as civil society

  • What it means to live up to those values

  • How to cultivate a favorable political context in which to do our work

  • How we can improve our impact

  • towards defining, introducing and implementing a framework of mutually shared development effectiveness principles and practices

Busan Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation:

A multi-stakeholder, multi-lateral and international agreement which states:

Paragraph 22: …we will:

  • Implement fully our respective commitments to enable CSOs to exercise their roles as independent development actors, with a particular focus on an Enabling Environment, consistent with agreed international rights, that maximises the contributions of CSOs to development.

    b) Encourage CSOs to implement practices that strengthen their accountability and their contribution to development effectiveness, guided by the Istanbul Principlesand theInternational Framework for CSO Development Effectiveness.

Officially recognizes the statement and efforts that civil society have made to improve their own effectiveness as independent development actors

However… Enabling Environment is still a concern as the space for civil society continues to shrink across the globe
