The new Monitoring Matrix 2016 Reports on Enabling Environment for Civil Society Development for all seven countries are now available on the MM platform, some of them accompanied for the first time by a visual presentation of the findings. The reports present the developments in EE in 2016, outlining the key conclusions and recommendations for improvement. Furthermore, they contain direct formulations which address the EU Guidelines indicators. The novelty in this year’s monitoring exercise – coding the reports and using charts for visualization – allows the viewers to see the level of fulfilment of the standards in the countries where this was applied. Through the color depiction, viewers can easily distinguish areas where improvements are needed or where the environment in which civil society in the individual country operates is favorable. Next to each standard’s visualisation is a brief textual description with key facts and information enabling the readers to better understand the situation, without reading the in-depth reports.
