BCSDN organized the first national consultation meetings of The Global Standard for CSO Accountability that took place in Macedonia, Kosovo, Albania and Serbia from the 17th till the 21st of October hosted by BCSDN members and partners in those countries. The Standard has been created by nine CSO accountability initiatives from across the world including the Balkan Civil Society Development Network. It aims to connect CSOs with people, partners, supporters and donors in order to build trust and to leverage impact in times of shrinking civic space. It is a strong commitment to the public and an invitation to hold CSOs to account and get involved. CSOs from the South East Europe region and Turkey are invited to participate to the online consultation open till the 10th of November and give their contribution to the development of the Global Standard for CSO Accountability.
