What we do
In line with the New Deal principles and various SDG16+ initiatives, we provide support to country-level civil society activities in the nineteen g7+ countries we have partnered with to effectively advocate and influence peacebuilding-related policies at various levels.
The core activity of the CSPPS is to ensure civil society coalition building at country level and also to provide capacity building support to civil society members of those coalitions. Securing political space for civil society is one of the key concerns and priorities of our targeted support to ensure that the New Deal principle of inclusive and legitimate politics materializes itself on the ground, through which in turn a meaningful and continuous dialogue process can be embarked upon.
Direct engagement, monitoring and advocacy towards ND implementation and policy in line with the Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Goals, FOCUS and TRUST principles. Enlargement of the CSPPS network by engaging potential new Civil Society partners and support to establish vibrant Civil Society Focal Points and Country Teams in g7+ countries.
Continued advocacy at global IDPS-level for the respect and acknowledgement of peacebuilding values and principles, notably inclusive processes at all levels, maintaining focus on addressing the root causes of drivers of conflict, fragility and resilience in the development of fragility assessments and indicators, inclusive and integrated design and implementation of New Deal Compacts.
Consolidation and strengthening of Civil Society coalitions through on-going capacity development and technical support to achieve this. Funding activities and projects that meet the critical needs of the Platform’s diverse and vibrant constituency and to ensure Civil Society engagement at all levels of the IDPS process.
