CPDE Global Synthesis Report 2015
The present report is a global synthesis drawing on contributions from 232 selected country CSOs on the current state of development cooperation, CSO enabling environment, and CSO development effectiveness at a country level. Geographic, political and socio-economic criteria were consciously considered in selecting the diversified 23-country sample with a clear aim of generating quality data and conclusions credible enough to be applicable to a wider understanding of global trends.
Therefore, based on cross-country inputs and starting from an overview of development cooperation, this report attempts at bringing together critical perspectives on the current context for CSOs’ engagement in the enabling environment for CSOs, as well as assess the added-value of their contribution (either through service delivery or advocacy activism) in shaping the development agenda and supporting development efforts—CSO development
effectiveness. It will feed into the work of the CPDE platform, as well as on the work of its member CSOs around the world, galvanising future policy engagement initiatives at global and country level. Below are detailed summary and analyses of the trends and recommendations, as presented in the reports under the three areas of focus.
