A new report by CONCORD, the European confederation of Relief and Development NGOs, looks at the mutual engagement between EU’s delegations and civil society organisations across the world. The report is based on responses to a worldwide survey from 229 civil society actors (CONCORD members and their partners) working in 70 partner countries, supplemented by interviews with EU Delegations (EUD).

Key messages and findings of the report include the need to improve the dialogue between EU delegations and civil society and to better develop cooperation between these actors. To aid this, the report reveals that dialogue between EU delegations and civil society is increasing, with numerous interesting experiences available to learn from. Furthermore, the elaboration of roadmaps for fostering this engagement is viewed as a major step in the right direction.

The report comes at a timely moment as this month the European Year for Development 2015 was launched with a dedicated focus on Europe in the world.
