Strengthening cooperation between public authorities and civil society

ECNL provided technical assistance in the process of development of the government strategy towards civil society in 2005, including a comprehensive comparative research, participation in the working group drafting the strategy and building capacity of government officials and CSOs on compacts and their implementation. The EU-funded project was followed by the adoption of two documents: Cooperation Memorandum between Cabinet and CSOs, 2005 and Declaration on Cooperation with Parliament, 2006.

In the following years, while not actively involved, we have been consulted on the implementation and monitoring of these documents and the development of subsequent ones, including the Policy Programme Strengthening Civil Society, 2008-2012.
