At the heart of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, signed by all UN members in September 2015, is a new development paradigm that requires partnerships between governments, civil society, private sector and international organizations, if its goals are to be realized. This worldview recognizes civil society as a key development partner in its own right and creates space for increased civil society engagement in national development polices and programs as nations embark on implementing the 2030 Agenda.
A team of Partnership for Transparency Fund (PTF) experts have analyzed several global trends concerning civil society’s role in development and their implications for various stakeholders in a forthcoming publication. Vinay Bhargava, Chief Technical Adviser of the Partnership for Transparency Fund, will make a brief presentation on our findings and ask for your input on their relevance and implications for your work.
We look forward to your participation on April 13th at 12:30pm in the OpenGov Hub. A light lunch will be provided. If you can’t make it to the Hub, join us virtually by clicking the following link at the start of the meeting: https://join.me/941-062-466.
