Deadline: 15 May 2019
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for a Cooperative Agreement from qualified entities to implement the Regional Civil Society Program in Central Asia.
USAID’s support to civil society in Central Asia has focused on several different elements of civil society strengthening, including: basic and advanced capacity building; the development of intermediate support organizations to provide support and training to grassroots CSOs in the region; support for policy advocacy efforts; improving the legal and regulatory environment for CSOs; forging connections between CSOs and private sector / government stakeholders; and expanding citizen access to civically-relevant information. These programs have primarily been implemented by international implementing partners, but in recent years, USAID/CA has expanded the number of activities implemented directly by host country partners.
Goal – Cultivate a vibrant and responsive citizen-oriented civil society in Central Asia.
- Foster a cohort of civically responsible young leaders.
- Strengthen civil society’s role in promoting greater public accountability.
- Enhance civil society’s ability to quickly react to unforeseen threats and opportunities.
- Build the capacity of CSOs to be financially viable and constituent-based.
Cross-cutting Approaches – regional coordination, networking and peer learning will form the cross-cutting foundation of the program’s technical approach that is modeled through capacity building activities, communities of practice, roundtables, study tours, conferences, meetings and other necessary relationship-building processes.
