How DAC members work
with civil society organisations

How DAC members work
with civil society organisations:
An overview

In the Accra Agenda for Action (2008), donors and developing country
governments committed to deepening their engagement with civil society
organisations (CSOs). This requires a broad understanding of CSOs as
development actors in their own right, and as aid donors, recipients and partners.
The book, How DAC members work with civil society organisations: An overview,
examines why donors think it is important to work with CSOs, the ways they
provide funds and the challenges they encounter.

Although donors have made progress in developing policies and strategies for
working with CSOs, clarifying and streamlining processes, strengthening mutual
accountability and engaging in meaningful dialogue on development policy
remain challenging. The book points to areas where donors, developing country
governments and CSOs from developing and developed countries can improve
the way they work together towards development objectives.
