The enabling environment for civil society is broadly defined as the conditions within which civil society works. Specifically, enabling environment is viewed as the varied array of conditions – economic, political, social, cultural, legal, and otherwise – that affect the capacity of citizens, whether individually or collectively, to voluntarily participate in civil society. The enabling environment has increasingly come to be viewed as key to assessing civil society’s health.

This booklet guides you through the main elements of the Enabling Environment for Civil Society Development. These elements include: Legal, Regulatory and Financial Environment in which CSOs operate, depicted through 8 steps as set forth in the Monitoring Matrix.
