Note to civil society actors on the EU programming process in partner countries

Friday, October 9, 2020

The EU is the world’s largest donor and also a key political actor, with high influence over global policies and international agendas. The EU also recognises civil society, in all its diversity and multiple roles, as a key development actor and, as such, is committed to political and policy dialogue with CSO partners at the regional and country levels. By actively engaging with EU and EU Member States’ representatives, you can contribute to influence the EU’s role and approach in your country, and seek support on the issues you work on.

The EU is currently reviewing its priorities and allocation of resources around the globe for the 2021-2027 period. This information note presents the process to define these priorities, as well as the opportunities for civil society organisations to take part in these discussions.
