Open Forum Consultations
One of the key activities of the Open Forum is the Country Consultations to discuss development effectiveness issues and promote dialogue among CSO leaders and practitioners, governments, donors and other stakeholders.
The consultations are expected to promote dialogue and elicit CSOs’ input on the proposed CSO development effectiveness framework, including principles, indicators, implementation guidelines, good practices for accountability mechanisms and minimum standards for enabling conditions. The outcome of each consultation was compiled in a common narrative report, which was then consolidated into regional reports. These national and regional reports were then compiled into a draft Global Report, which was presented at the first Open Forum Global Assembly and served as a basis for the framework and contributions to be presented at the fourth High Level forum in Busan in 2011.
