Principles on CSOs’ Development Effectiveness

The first global assembly of the Open forum on CSOs’ development effectiveness took place in Istanbul from 27 to 30 September 2010. The CSOs reached consensus on a set of eight global development effectiveness principles (the so called Istanbul Principles) and on essential elements for Enabling Environment . The principles and the elements on enabling environment constitute the actual ‘Framework for CSOs development effectiveness’, which is supposed to be the basis for the over-all advocacy strategy and goals of the Open forum.
