Ownership and Partnership: What Role for Civil Society in Poverty Reduction Strategies?

According to the OECD “Partnership Forums are the means by which the OECD Development Assistance Committee provides a venue for non-governmental actors to express their points of view and to offer their own contributions to development policy and strategy. In December 2000, the DAC and the Development Centre held a Forum on ways of integrating civil society into policy formation in developing countries, and to identify obstacles to such involvement. Participants agreed that civil society’s role in poverty-reduction strategies had been an important element in succesful implementation.” Hence, this publication is recommended for civil society organizations, governments in OECD and in developing countries, as well as for international organizations implementing poverty-reduction strategies.
