Supporting and Strengthening the Policy Roles and Practices of Canadian Civil Society Organizations' for Development Effectiveness

A two-year grant will support research, analysis, and dialogue by Canadian civil society organizations to enhance their effectiveness.

As an umbrella organization that represents about 100 groups working in international development, the Canadian Council for International Co-operation (CCIC) works globally to achieve sustainable human development, end poverty, and promote social justice. The IDRC grant will contribute to CCIC's objectives of supporting research, analysis, and dialogue by Canadian civil society organizations. By doing so, CCIC aims to disseminate information and create learning opportunities for its members, improve their capacity and effectiveness, and ensure that their learning and research is informed by diverse Southern perspectives.

CCIC is one of the main institutional grantees in IDRC's Canadian Partnerships program, and has received support
since the program's inception. In 2010-2011, CCIC created a new strategy to focus its policy and program efforts on Canadian civil society and development effectiveness. At the same time, the Council is maintaining its important role of convenor and is working with its membership to build stronger coalitions, increase collaboration, and generate new knowledge.
