Following the event on “Strengthening accountability, transparency and sustainability of civil society organizations – Code of Standards for CSOs “ organized early in September this year, Partners Albania and National Resource Center organized during these months a series of informing and discussion roundtables with about 200 civil society organizations in Tirana, Vlora, Shkodra and Korça.
The Code of Standards aims to be a self-regulatory mechanism for the sector that will contribute to increase the CSOs functioning standard, the quality of their activity and transparency of CSOs. This is the beginning of a working process in collaboration and with the involvement of all interested civil society organizations as well as international organizations, agencies and donors working to develop civil society in the country.
Considering this initiative, a decisive step in the creation of standards for the work of the sector and its further development, we invite all interested CSOs to become part of this process with their comments, suggestions, questions and involvement in a more inclusive way as part of the working group on this issue.
Starting from January 2020 will be worked intensively on the preparation of the Code the mechanism of how it will work. The process will have several stages, aiming a large and effective involvement of the sector. Following the drafting of the Code, a series of regional consultations with the sector will be organized across the country.
All organizations that would like to be actively involved in this process are kindly invited to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
