CPDE CSO Development Effectiveness Review

It has been 11 years since CSOs adopted the Istanbul Principles (IP), a landmark document that consolidates the principles and values that guide CSO practice all over the world. CPDE, in its Strategic Plan 2020-2023, has renewed its commitment to continue the promotion and the development of tools around CSO Development Effectiveness based on the IP.

This year, CPDE aims to establish a baseline information to know the current state of IP implementation within our platform and to support succeeding platform initiatives, including development of CSO DE frameworks, the conduct of country initiatives and global conferences and other engagements.

Be part of our baseline survey! This survey helps you reflect on how your organisation has practiced the Principles and on the challenges you have faced in its implementation.

There are two ways to answer the survey:
