State Concept on CSO Development
Working on the initial draft of the State Concept on CSO Development is completed.  The  Concept  is  a  key  program  document  on  the  CSO development  policy,  which  aims  to  foster  civil  initiatives,  set  up environment required for the development of CSOs and ensure their real participation in the decision-making process.

By the Memorandum of Cooperation executed between the Parliament of Georgia  and  CSOs  on  12  December  2013,  the  Parliament  of  Georgia undertook  an obligation to draft  and adopt  the  State  Concept  on CSO Development  together  with  all  interested  parties.  CSOs  have  set  up  a working group for drafting the Concept, which included representatives of active  CSOs  (including  regional  organizations  of  Georgia)  and parliamentary majority and minority.  Conducting a participative process was one  of  the  key  tasks  of  the  working  group.  To  this  end,  the  Civil Society Institute has organized public discussions of the document with CSOs operating in 8 cities of Georgia (Tbilisi,  Kutaisi,  Zugdidi,  Ozurgeti,Batumi,  Akhaltsikhe,  Gori  and  Telavi).  Based  on  the  feedback  receivedfrom  regions  and  recommendations  of  international  experts,  the  draft Concept  was  revised  and  improved.  Further,  the  Concept  was  actively examined within the "CSO Development Effectiveness" sub-group of theEastern Partnership Civil Society Forum.

To harmonize the opinions of all interested parties, the draft CSO Concept on CSO Development is already available on the CSO web portal and all interested parties are able to get familiar with the initial  version of the Concept.
