The Open Forum are developing a new CSO effectiveness toolkit!

Open Forum is proud to launch the consultation on a new resource for implementing CSO Development Effectiveness – the DRAFT Practitioner’s Activity Guide, which will supplement the International Framework for CSO Development Effectiveness and its accompanying Implementation and Advocacy Toolkits!

The aim of the Practitioner’s Activity Guide is to train CSO practitioners to transmit the concepts and collective experience behind the International Framework and the Toolkits, and to help CSOs take those first conceptual and planning steps on the path to improving their effectiveness.

At present, the Practitioner’s Activity Guide is in its pilot testing phase. Between August and October 2012, one testing workshop is planned in each of the following regions: Africa, Asia, Latin America, MENA, North America and Europe (see the schedule of consultations). Based on the inputs from these consultations, a finalized version of the Practitioner’s Activity Guide will be completed by early December 2012.

Please refer to the Practitioner’s Guide webpage with updated schedule of consultations and other information on this new resource!
