Policy Forum on development

  • The Policy Forum on development is the follow-up of the Structured Dialogue process. One of the main recommendation of this process was to maintain a informal dialogue between the different stakeholders

Overview of the process

The Structured Dialogue on the involvement of Civil society and Local authorities (CSOs & LA) in EC development cooperation has been concluded in May in Budapest with a final conference. In line with the global Aid effectiveness Agenda, it was an inclusive process, which sought to bring on board all relevant stakeholders involved in EC development cooperation (EC, EU delegations, European Parliament, Member States, Civil society and Local and Regional Authorities from Europe and partner countries). This initiative aimed at increasing effectiveness of all stakeholders involved by

  • building consensus on the role to be played by CSOs & LAs,
  • finding ways to improve the effectiveness of CSO & LA involved in EC cooperation and
  • exploring ways to adapt EC programmes.

Main outputs

What are the main outputs of The final Conference of Budapest?

  • During the final conference of the Structured Dialogue organized in 17-19 May 2011 in Budapest, participants endorsed by Final Statement of the Structured Dialogue. This document constitutes a firm multi-stakeholders commitment to cooperate for an efficient partnership in development, with full respect of each actor prerogatives, roles and mandates, taking stock of the knowledge acquired through this unique dialogue exercise.
  • The Concluding paper of the Structured Dialogue aims at presenting the main conclusions of 14 months of multi-stakeholders dialogue. This document has been comented and amended by participants at several occasions and summarize participants' consensual understanding of key topics on the agenda. It is organized around two main parts: (i) synthesis of discussions and key messages; and (ii) recommendations per categories of Stakeholder.

Technical fiches on EU delivery and selection mechanisms

  • In the framework of the Structured Dialogue, stakeholders reached a consensus on the most pertinent needs of CSOs and LAs to be supported by Donors. Consequently discussions focused on how to best adapt existing EU delivery mechanisms and on alternative or innovative mechanisms that could be used in the future. The aim was to identify a set of conditions and criteria for the different possible support models in order to determine the most promising and feasible mechanisms for effectively supporting CSOs and LAs in their respective roles and ambitions as development actors. A short technical brief was prepared for each of the 12 delivery mechanisms in order to provide relevant background information and focus discussions.
