About Civil Society Forums

An efficient way of sharing experience and best practices while allowing for a regular consultation of CSOs and relevant stakeholders on policy drafting and monitoring is through the organisation of networking and communication platforms. 

Therefore, as part of its efforts to foster cooperation, consultation and exchange of experiences among CSOs and stakeholders, Civic Space regularly organises Civil Society Forums (CSF).
