On the 5th July, our network organized the 2nd official Working Group Meeting, which gathered 10 experts from the Western Balkans and Turkey, BCSDN and ECNL. The objective of the Meeting was further develop the Monitoring Matrix for Enabling Environment for Civil Society Development (CSDev). The meeting is part of the project “Cross-Sector Regional Partnership for Enabling Legal Environment for CSDev” supported by USAID and ICNL under the Legal Innovation Fund. The meeting discussed the further steps for the Matrix development, the added value of this initiative, the finalization of the priorities/standards and the development of indicators for the Matrix. Once developed, the Matrix will serve as a shadow-monitoring tool for CSOs, a monitoring tool for the EC and self-assessment tool for the Government for regular following of the progress in the area as support and pressure mechanism.
