“Strategic Challenges to Civil Society Sustainability” 

Discussion on
“Strategic Challenges to Civil Society Sustainability”
25 October 2017, PRIA Head Office between 4.00 and 5.30 p.m.

The dominant model for any developing country NGO and other civil society groups is one of depending on grants from international donors/national governments. This model has been fast-changing for the past several years, affecting the sustainability of many civil society organisations and networks. What are the challenges to civil society sustainability, in the face of reduced (or often removed) external funding? There are many aspects of sustainability, not least of which is financial sustainability. Civil society sustainability is linked to the nature of civil society — what it stands for and what other constraints (social and political) the sector faces.

In continuation of the series of roundtables on challenges faced by the civil society sector organised by PRIA this year, we invite you to participate in a discussion on “Strategic Challenges to Civil Society Sustainability” on 25 October 2017 at PRIA Head Office between 4.00 and 5.30 p.m.

Dr Brian Pratt, Founding Director of INTRAC (www.intrac.org) and Editor-in-Chief of the international journal “Development in Practice” will present the results from a recent study INTRAC undertook on organisational sustainability, financial sustainability and the reduced space for civil society in different countries.

We look forward to your participation. please send your confirmation to pooja.saxena@pria.org
