The implementation of the Strategy for Cooperation with and Development of the Civil Society and an Action Plan for 2018-2020 noted progress. Information concerning the implementation of the measures and activities is regularly collected and published by the Unit for Cooperation with NGOs, and the Council is engaging in quarterly oversight. Progress in the main development measures for the f civil society is still slow (reform of public funding, individual and corporate donations, social services and volunteerism), as part of those are envisaged for 2020.
CSOs undertook different activities that contributed to the realization of the Action plan. Even though CSOs are not listed as implementers, as this is to be understood as an obligation of the relevant institutions, their contribution is mentioned in the report on the implementation.
CSOs are included in the monitoring of the implementation of the Strategy, through the Council the mandate of which is to follow the implementation. Namely, at the Council sessions, there were regular discussions concerning the implementation of the Strategy and reviews of the Unit reports on its implementation. The realization of the Strategy for 2018 was reviewed at the 10th session of the Council. It was concluded that the report did not reflect the situation, and recommended quarterly reporting on the implementation of the Strategy. Then, the Council reviewed the quarterly report (July-September 2019) on the implementation of the Strategy on the 16th session (October 2019), however, the content of the discussions and the feedback by the members concerning this report were not reflected in the minutes.
