10:00 AM 22 september, 2017

Participants will be asked to role-play in a debate on key issues related to the enabling environment for civil society and CSOs’ own development effectiveness. The purpose of the session is to create awareness of what drives other actors and the challenges they face in their institutional environment. What is it like to leave your own position as CSO, donor or partner country representative and discuss civil society issues? During the session we will also discuss the Global Partnership for Effective Development Cooperation’s Indicator Two: civil society operates in an environment that maximizes its engagement in and contribution to development, and the multi-stakeholder process for its 2018 monitoring.
