The Global Standard is a reference standard that captures a globally shared dynamic understanding of CSO Accountability. Developed by nine Accountability Initiatives including BCSDN, the Standard was officially launched at the International Civil Society Week in Suva, Fiji in front of around 50 representatives of CSOs, donors and INGOs from all over the globe. The journey of the development of the Standard and its content was presented by Anabel Cruz, chair of CIVICUS and co-chair of Rendir Cuentas, one of the partners of the Standard. BCSDN Executive Director Ilina Nesik, actively participated on the launch, leading the discussion on the ways of operationalizing the Standard and presenting the possibilities for implementations shared by the partners. The next phase is foreseen as enlarging the initiative towards more networks and organizations that will be able to contribute to the dynamic accountability of the CSO sector. Read more here.
