Civil Society and Aid Effectiveness

Findings, Recommendations and Good Practice

In the Accra Agenda for Action (2008), donors and developing country governments commit to deepening their engagement with civil society organisations (CSOs). Better aid requires a broader understanding of the aid effectiveness agenda and a place for CSOs as development actors in their own right and as aid donors, recipients and partners. This book is a resource for implementing the recommendations on civil society and aid effectiveness emerging from the Accra High Level Forum and its preparatory process. These recommendations address a broad community, including developing country governments, donors, and CSOs from developing and developed countries.

Hide / Show Abstract

This chapter argues that the effectiveness of CSOs is conditioned by the whole community of development actors including: developing country governments, donors, and CSOs themselves. Enhancing CSO effectiveness is therefore a collective endeavour. This chapter recommends actions to strengthen the enabling environment for civil society, improve donor models of support and strengthen CSO partnerships. It concludes with proposals for further multi-stakeholder work on CSO effectiveness and for incorporating CSOs in future processes and agreements on development and aid.
