The Next Generation of Civil Society Engagement: Boldly Going Where No NGO Has Gone Before
For USAID and other international development donors and practitioners, the "why" of forging strong collaborations with civil society is clear: Partnerships with civil society organizations provide critical input on project design and priorities, and empower individuals on food security and nutrition issues. Additionally, they often act as drivers of change in their local communities. But, the "how" of partnering with civil society organizations can be murkier.
This Ag Sector Council webinar will explore two case studies from the Mwanzo Bora Nutrition Program in Tanzania and the Cambodia HARVEST program in order examine effective ways to engage civil society, and specifically discuss:
1) What is the “next generation” of successful civil society engagement steps needed to take CSO partnerships into new development frontiers?
2) What skills are needed with implementing partners to implement the “next generation” of civil society engagement steps?
Dr. Nene Diallo, Director of Health, Africare, and Jessica Padron, USAID Tanzania, will also be joining the event from Washington D.C. and Tanzania respectively.
Please note that this Ag Sector Council will be a webinar-only event. Please register ahead of time and circulate to your networks!
