Practitioners Activity Guide
CSOs working to apply the International Framework for CSO Development Effectiveness in their local contexts have important resources that they can refer to - the Implementation and Advocacy Toolkits that accompany the International Framework.
To further support country level implementation and strategic planning around the Istanbul Principles and enabling environment, Open Forum is currently developing a Practitioners Activity Guide .
The aim of this new resource is to train CSO practitioners to transmit the concepts and collective experience behind the International Framework and the accompanying Toolkits, and to help CSOs take those first conceptual and planning steps on the path to improving their effectiveness.
At present, the Practitioners Activity Guide is in its pilot testing phase. Between August and October 2012, one testing workshop is planned in each of the following regions: Africa, Asia, Latin America, MENA, North America and Europe (see the schedule of consultations).
Based on the inputs from these consulations, a finalized version of the Practitioners Activity Guide will be completed by early December 2012.
