On a workshop organized at the EESC in Brussels last Wednesday (25th September), BCSDN with its members and partners discussed concerns with the DG Enlargement. The discussion focused especially on further ways to support capacity-building of CSOs, grant-making, support to grass-root and citizens’ initiatives, and networks as the cornerstones for the new support to be launched with the new IPA as of January, 2014. As the discussion concluded, it was clear that the time for input is now and it seems that this time around the DG Enlargement is poised to make the best of the local CSOs’ capacities and knowledge. Views on needs and possibilities are definitely converging, but let’s see what the Brussels “pipeline” produces.
