Key Messages

  • Strengthening the mechanisms for CSO accountability is another important goal
  • An enabling environment for CSO development effectiveness requires cooperation from governments
  • The framework should provide the needed tools for CSOs, wherever they work, to be responsive to their constituencies and society at large, and to create a more equitable and better world.
