CSO Partnership for Development Usefulness

We are building CSO Partnership for Development Usefulness, an open platform that unites CSOs from around the world. We strive to make development more effective by reshaping the global aid architecture and empowering CSOs working on the ground. In promoting development Usefulness, in all areas of work, both our own and the work of others, we are guided by a human rights-based approach. We work with a strong focus to support country, regional, and international Public-Private-CSO Coalition, combining this with the coordinated regional and global work on development New Models of Partnership through Dialogue, Education and Cooperation.
