14. Why is the project taking place?The project aims to increase and improve the capacity of civil society organisations (CSOs) across the EU to raise awareness of development finance issues, engage in development education activities and undertake advocacy and campaigning on Financing for Development (FfD). We know that many CSOs lack the human and campaigning resources to scale up their work, that some have a lack of experience of campaigning at the EU level, and that some have a lack of knowledge of FfD.
15. Overall objective of the projectTo contribute to increased availability of reliable, democratically controlled and effective Financing for Development, as a key Means of Implementation for the delivery of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
16. Specific objective(s) of the projectOC1: 45 European Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) are supported and enabled to actively participate in strong civil society networks, in order to increase public awareness of Financing for Development thus creating widespread support for European policy reforms
17. What will have changed as a result of the project? (Summarise the intended outcome)OP1: Civil society organizations across the EU significantly increase and improve their capacity to promote awareness raising, development education, and advocacy and campaigning on financing for development. OP2: European citizens are informed and engaged in discussion about the reforms needed to increase the quantity and improve the quality of financing for development.
