Cypriot Civil Society Mapping and Capacity Building Project
The current context in which Cypriot NGOs operate is admittedly a challenging one. Factors ranging from lack of available funds and systematic institutional dialogue, to not enough visibility for local CSOs, unavoidably define and affect their work. In this challenging context, the growing need for local CSOs to take up and fulfill their role as full and equal partners in the socio-economic development of our society is identified. This project aimed to build the capacity of local civil society in both communities and to make the civil society sector more transparent and accountable. This was achieved through a mapping activity, training courses, networking events and the creation of a Code of Conduct. The target groups include local CSOs and networks and the wider civil society.
