ADPP is pleased to share the Civil Society Organization Sustainability Index (CSOSI) report of 2017 for Angola. The report describes advances and setbacks in the country’s civil society sector in 2017 through assessments of seven key dimensions: the legal environment, organizational capacity, financial viability, advocacy, service provision, infrastructure, and public image.
The report is produced based on discussion by an expert panel comprised of 8 Civil Society Organization (CSO) practitioners, researchers, and development practitioners of the country. The expert panel assessed the seven dimensions of CSO sustainability according to key indicators. They agreed on a score for each dimension, which can range from 1 (most developed) to 7 (most challenged).
The index is a useful source of information for CSOs, governments, donors, academics, and others who want to better understand and monitor key aspects of CSO sustainability in Angola.
ADPP is grateful to the members of the expert panel who attended the expert panel meeting in last July and contributed to this report. Their knowledge, perceptions, ideas, and dedication are the foundation upon which this index rests.
The project was implemented in collaboration between USAID, FHI360 and ADPP. Please visit the link to read the report.
